I will try one ounce, thanks.

that is the range i aim for as well, it depends on if your used to sweet or dry, i prefer dry so semi sweet is pretty sweet for me.

I find different ciders need different amounts of sugar. I used a very small amount in my last apple cider, my first was very tart and needed more, my second is with cranberry and it had a bitter edge that needed sweetness to balance.

Perceived taste is much more important than actual hydrometer reading.
