I know nothing about making cider (only beer), but my sisters and mother insist that I try to make them something similar to this drink. I make my brother and dad beer, so I think I should make something for my mom and sisters.

I appreciate any help. Thanks

I'm not familiar with ciders. but try this link it looked promising :

http://hbd.org/cgi-bin/recipator/rec...p=57&item=2239

You may want to email the guy to see if he made it again and what the results were.

I have no recipies only links:

A good yeast selection article by Greg Appleyard: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/scrumpy/cider/ciderca2.htm

Some instructions from Leeners: http://www.leeners.com/cider.html

Some detailed info from Gillian Grafton, Paul Gunningham: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/scrumpy/cider/cider.htm

Directions by some MIT student: http://www.mit.edu/~dfm/brew.html

I think that getting some good juice (I bet Cider from a local orchard or if you have to, organic from the grocery store would work best) and using ec-1118 should produce good cider. If you check out the ratings of the yeast by Appleyard, 1118 rates about as well as the code named "George" yeast. It seems that the "George" yeast may be what Hornsbys uses (eg George Hornsby)... but is never declared.

Good luck, and if you get it to taste similar (or better ), let us know.

What did you end up doing? I'd like to make a batch in a week or so.

Oh, and most commercial ciders use apple flavoring and forced carbonation.
