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.

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.
