Reporting back one the ciders I made.. The one in the gallon jug was perfect. Went from 1.065 to 1.012 in six days. I cold crashed for 48 hours, then racked off the lees into another jug and poured straight into a glass. Had a little taste of apple, a little dry and it had a small tart snap at the end that made u have to drink more. I have a five gallon batch going right now. The half gallon jug of store bought stuff was just way to dry go me. It really had no good flavor at all.

That's unfortunate about the store bought stuff. That seemed like an interesting project. Im thinking of doing a cider myself in the near future.

You sound like me when I first got started. Actually, you just sound like me...
