Hi all! I was looking to do a simple hard cider and I was looking for anyone who has a good recipe to share. I had a few questions...
1) I would like it to be a little sweet and still have a little apple flavor. I dont mind the high alcohol content, but I dont want it so dry that I cant tell its apple cider.
2) I was also wondering if its possible to do in something like a gallon milk jug? I have a 5 gal carboy but until I find the recipe I like, I dont want to waste 5gallons of cider.
3) I was thinking I would store it in the basement while it ferments. The basement has consistently been 55 degrees for the last 2 weeks. Would this need a lager yeast?
