Well things are progressing faster than I had anticipated, but that works for me! I just made my caramel! Going to get the concentrate in a couple of hours, and may b sippin some still caramel cider by the end of the night! I included pics of my caramel that was 2 cups water, 2 cups golden brown sugar, 1 tsp. of apple pie spice, and 1 tsp. of cinnamon. The other pic is my cider that is ready to be mixed! can't wait!

Would this work okay with farm pressed (brownish) apple juice?

That's what I used, but I haven't made the original recipe so I can't compare...

It'll work just fine, as long as it hasn't been dosed with preservatives. Some people would say you'll end up with something even tastier than the store bought AJ. But I'm pretty sure you'll have a cloudy, rather than clear, final product.

Sparkolloid will also work to clear cider.
