I am going to do an Apple Raspberry cider. SWMBO and i both really like the Raspberry Shocktop as well as raspberry ciders so that is the flavor I am looking for; prominent but not overpowering. With that being said check out the recipe below and let me know what you think. Note: this is just the potential recipe, nothing has been brewed yet.
9 Gal Walmart apple juice
3 cans apple/ras concentrate
2 bags frozen raspberries, blended
X amt brown sugar?
Nottingham ale yeast
I would like it to produce about 7.5% abv. I will be kegging this in a 15 gal keg just becuase that is what is available to me and i dont have the room in my apt for a bunch of bottles.
I just brewed a raspberry cider with Notty, it's awesome, it's now sitting in secondary on a pound and a half of raspberries, just wanted to boost up the color a bit before bottling, check out the recipe just search agents raspberry cider. But from what I see your recipe looks good, not sure if u will need more sugar to get to 7.5, but just use a hydrometer and add sugar if you need it, mine is around 6 to 6.5 and tastes refreshing, my recipe made just over six gallons. Can't wait to carb up. Happy brewing
