Well, these are my first ciders. I actually added a small bottle of 100% Pomegranate juice to the apfelwein. It's fairly cold here this time of year. It was about 20F this morning. The 5g is going to take awhile. I followed the EdWort's recipe except for the added Pom juice.
The smaller one is just unfiltered apple juice from Whole Foods. Added Nottingham and we'll see how it turns out.
If I can just keep the kid's hands off of them.
