I bottled last night and ended up with 30 bottles. I used carbonation tabs since my last cider batch is severely over carbed and I batch primed that one.

We'll see in three weeks how it turns out.

Seconded on this. That ReThinker is great.
I'm going to try to recreate it when I get a little better at brewing.

It's not much help but I do know that Finn River uses Cascade hops. I would think Citra would be a good choice as well, but that's just a guess.

I used .5 oz of Cascade in a 3 gallon batch. I bottled it a week ago so I can't provide any feedback other than it smelled great.

Tried the first bottle of my batch last night and it turned out great. It smelled like grass and hay and had a very slight hop taste to it with great apple notes.

I found this thread on a web-search for dry-hopped cider. I've made quite a few batches of cider, but never really thought seriously about putting any hops in because the light body didn't seem like it would stand up to it. I have been trying to build a sessionable IPA, and so far without success. I'm about ready to give up, although maybe the right yeast could give me the body I'm lacking...?

Anyway I really love the hop profile of my latest attempt, and when I just finished the dregs of a glass, I thought "That hop flavor (minus the bittering) would be GREAT on a glass of cider." Who else has tried this? For what it's worth, the main late addition / dry hops in my beer were citra and crystal.

So I'm curious to see what others have to report, and will add my two cents when I've made a batch.

Ben

I brewed this up using .7oz of cascade. I think it tastes amazing. I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on what other hops might go well with cider?

Today while bottling another batch of brew I dropped a shot of Fireball in a pint of my dry hopped cider. It was absolutely delicious!!!
