I want to get something brewed and kegged to try out my newly converted kegerator. I don't have ready access to brewing supplies without driving an hour or more, and there are some really good local cider producers. I figured this would be a quick, easy batch that I could get kegged relatively quickly. I need yeast recommendations, and any general cider advice that people can offer.

Go to the cider forum and read through the second sticky down. Just about every combination described in detail.

Youngs cider yeast is very popular in the UK and i've used it a few times with good results.

I've not tried that one, what is the FG of the yeast. I ask as Youngs takes the cider to 1.001 almost .000

Edit- Just read the reviews on White Labs 775 and its now on my to do list, thanks!
