it's none of my business, but have you had a cascade cider before? i tried one once, two sips and right down the drain with it. absolutely disgusting. that said, there are no absolutes in this business. so- carry on! but if you haven't tried it before, i would hop a small bit first just to make sure...

I have not. I searched here about dry hopping cider and the majority of what I've found was to use a low alpha hop with good aroma. Is it something specific about cascade hops or is is dry hopping cider in general for you?

for me hops and apples simply don't work together. i say cascade specifically because of the above mentioned highly memorable experience of a cascade cider. actually it was cascade late hopped graff. but some people apparently love hops in cider; i don't know who's nuts, them or me. probably a bit of both

My pear cider, Mangrove Jack kit with added preservative free pear halves in juice, extra 1/2 kilo of brew sugar, some yeast nutrient not to mention having a crack using the krausen collar (after the airlock set up had a slow leak at the tap). The brew started bubbling within hours before I had to change vessel. First cider ever, first brew of any kind in 6 years...

Dry cider champagne on the left 6 Gal, Cran Ras Cider in the middle (Not cran juice mix) 5 Gal, Semi-sweet cyser on the right 6.5 Gal

This was from last year, I wait until the first frost to get my cider, ups the OG by quite a bit, by November it's like candy.

Cider on the left, mead on the right.

Cider is a blend of apples I picked and juiced (Cortland, Jonathan, Spigold, Fuju, Crab.) My first attempt at cider- hopefully it's tasty.

There's a lot of sediment/pulp that has settled out. At some point I'll have to rack off that stuff and add a lot more juice to top it off.

I'm sorry something about this pic makes me think urine sample hahaha I think it's the cup it's in, I was in health care for eight or nine years in geriatric nursing I couldn't drink apple juice for years . Haha anyhow please don't take offense! My cider made with unfiltered apple juice looked exactly the same
