I want to make a raspberry-apple cider for the wife's B-day in March.....

Can you use lager yeast with descent results??

I ferment in the basement @55-65'F. It needs to be quafable by 3/1.

Thanks!!!

I don't see any reason why not. There are no complex sugars in cider, so cider is fairly forgiving on the yeast. Based on my experiences, a cooler ferment can only help. My only concern is alcohol tolerance, if you add sugar.

By the same token, Nottingham is good for 57F, it's cheap and very clean.
