how much sugar did you add to carb? I'm assuming at least 1/2c? I've got a spare carboy sitting right now and i'm gonna follow behind a batch of stout with this. Also curious how tis would be with pear.....

IMO the apple really takes a back seat to the honey. The cider ends up being more of a medium. I assume that would hold true for pear cider as well.

Is there a reason to use the ale yeast over cider yeast?

Just a guess here but, depending on the ale yeast it won't dry it out as much. I used trappist yeast on my last batch of this and it came out WAY beter than my last few attempts with cider or standard ale yeast from nottingham.

How hard was it to clean your pot after?

Cool. I have an extra 3lbs clover hanging around. I may have to try this in a mini-mead.

I just made mine. The honey went from honey colored to BLACK in the space of two minutes. It then filled my entire apartment with smoke. Fun times.
