I too have had no luck finding the concentrate. I live in Mississppi and we have koger here but no concentrate. I want to make this really bad as my first cider. Do you have and advise as to using beer yeast instead of using champ. or wine yeast. Also if i still cant find the concentrate what else would you recomend. I seen pomegratne juice and black cherry juice but i dont know the ratio of juice compared to concentrate. Thanks and CHEERS

I don't really know the ratios would be either. You should be able use mostly any concentrate. As far as regular juice you could just do it by taste. never made the cider using beer yeast but it wouldn't hurt to try

I have never made a cider and this grabbed me, I dont like dry ciders, and i read on here to use ale yeast for a sweeter cider. you say any concentrate would work what did you mean. I can't find and cherry or pomegrante concentrate.

Question. This is in my primary. I want to bottle it but also want to back sweeten. How does the back sweeten mix with the priming sugars? Procedure? Help!

You would need to pasteurize to stop fermentation before the bottles explode.

There are a few good writeups on the forums on how to back sweeten and bottle that can better explain it than me.

i couldn't find the OO cherry/pom within 200 miles of me. so... i got the cherry/pom from pom. only issue i have is it is not quite sweet enough (it's dry but still very tasty). if using this, maybe add 1/2 pound of sugar/brown sugar?

thoughts?

I would either do that or use half a can of what you did get.

Key is to add small and taste and make small adjustments when sweetening

What temp is recommended for a quick and efficient (1 month) primary fermentation?

I would stay within the middle ranges of the yeast you choose. In the case of ec1118 it can ferment anywhere from 50f to 86f but the higher the temperature the more off flavors such as fusel (very hot alcohol tastes) and diacetyl (buttery flavor) yeasts will create so I try to stay in the mid to lower range for the yeast.

So under 70 but above 60 should be good for ec1118. Keep in mind these are not ambient temperatures but fermentation temperatures which can vary depending on the size of the batch. If you do not have temperature control just try to keep it under 65 ambient and in my experience it will come out tasty, if you go above that no worries it just might require a bit more time to age.
