Hi everyone I'm going to make 1 gallon of cider to about 6 percent,

Going to use 4.5 litres of apple juice
Sugar (not sure how much yet)
Youngs cider yeast (how much)

Any tips so this doesn't taste like a bum?

Use enough sugar to raise the sg to about 1.060 or 1.065. If you dont have a hydrometer, 4oz per gallon should be about right for early season apples.

Use a third of a packet of yeast. Youngs cider yeast is OK if you like it really dry, Youngs ale yeast, Gervins English Ale, or Brupaks Ale will give you more apple flavor

Thanks, is there anyway to get good results with apple juice from a carton?
