He means the kind that you have to take the juice can out of the freezer and stare at it.

This is my first batch so I would appreciate some specific suggestions on how to backsweeten it for a newbie.
Any links to backsweetening tips or instructions would be appreciated.

I made a batch of Edworts apfelwein, then followed this recipe to sweeten, without the campden tablets. Yes, the concentrate I speak of is the frozen apple juice concentrate you buy from the grocery store.

Edwort mentions a few ways to backsweeten his recipe on the epic apfelwien thread. Read through it and you will get 40+ ideas on how to sweeten your drink.

Fun part of homebrewing - do something. Drink. If it doesnt work, do something different. Drink another. Keep notes so you don't repeat mistakes.

my ginger cider is similar to Angry Orchards Ginger- kind of thrown together one day but it turned out welll:


3 gal. cheal store-bought apple juice
3 C. light brown sugar
3 tea bags- soaked for a day in primary and then fished out at the recommendation of someone on this fine forum...
3 oz. grated ginger root
1 C. raisins
about 4 TBS of lime juice - added on secondary after reading Graham's English Cider recipe
a cider yeast that I cannot remember the name of- I threw away the little bag and failed to write it down...
primary for 3-4 days and secondary for about two weeks
backsweetened with 1/2 a bag or Truvia per bottle- about 30 bottles- I used 15 of the little bags
primed with 1/3 C. light brown sugar

again- I just kind of threw this together- a mix of ideas from Graham's and a gingered cider recipe from Paul Corrently's The Art of Cidermaking (Gingered Honey Cider pg. 54)

Real life has interrupted my plans, so KISS v2.0 has been on "set it and forget it" mode for a bit. But I did check step 1 two days ago, it was at SG 1.000, and getting very clear in the primary.

Step 2 may be tonight...

How did this taste with only two cans of concentrate compared to the five recommended in the recipe?
