So i finally made this today. had to tweak the recipe a bit as the store only had three gallons of cider. so i used three ciders and one of fresh apple juice. We will see how it turns out, but from the smell of it and the taste i got when i took my OG reading i think this is gonna be pretty good stuff!

So i went to check on the fermenter today and its is bubbling nicely, but it smells really odd in the room i have it in. I investigated and found the smell coming from my carboy. it almost has a sulfer smell to it...i know that lager yeast smells like that, isnt nottingham an ale yeast though? is this a normal smell or do i maybe have something going on thats not right?

And, to clarify, since I'm a newb... I can increase that by using more sugar and fermenting a little longer, right?

If you want to up the abv add dexatrose (corn sugar). It will boost the alcohol content and add nothing else like taste

Finally got a chance to try this out tonight, ended up using 4gals of 'Apple Wedge Cider' from Hendersonville, NC; 3ibs of Wholesome Sweeteners' Organic Dark Brown Sugar; 4.25 oz of 'Silly Cow' Hot chocolate mix, and 1 ground nutmeg with the prescribed 4 cinnamon sticks. Tastes very pleasant from my OG reading, which came out to an astounding 1.085...

Very excited, and a little bit timid to see how this will turn out. See y'all in a couple of months with an update!
