I was just wondering,
what apple juices do you use?
What's the best for quality and what's the best for value?

is their something you've tried what doesn't work.

thanks

I use apple cider from local apple orchard, they pasteurize it but do not add any additives or preservatives.

I've had very good results with White House apple juice (regular no sugar added, no preservatives) from Wal-mart, oddly enough.

Here's the fermented version (along with 2.5 lbs of brown sugar in 5-gallons):

Google seems to think Nottingham is good for apples...
I ended up going to the local farmers market to find someone that would sell me bulk honey. There was also a guy selling apple and pear juice that I plan on trying at some point. I would advise the same, go find a farmers market and get some numbers / samples.

I've tried apple and pear juice before, turned out really watery with little to no flavour. Aging didn't help!
