I am excited to try my hand at making some hard cider but this will be my first time brewing anything, so I want to make sure I can get as much help as I can with the process and what stuff I need to buy.
So far I think I will be following the process for a 1 gallon batch laid out on http://makinghardcider.com/
for a sweet carbonated hard cider using uv pasteurized orchard cider (back sweetening with xylo sweet / splenda, and carbonating with dextrose or something like Cooper's Carb Drops).
I am totally new to this so I will have to buy everything, here's my list please tell me if I need anything else or if I can do without something!
One Step cleaner
2x 1 gal Carboys
Size 6 Drilled Rubber Stopper
Airlock S-Bubble Type
Nottingham Ale Yeast
Dextrose or Coopers Carb Drops
