4oz by weight, not volume.

Ok I was figuring 6 oz = 3/4 of a cup. But I guess with a cider more carbonation is desired.

I like this recipe but what yeast can I use to keep it closer to the sweeter side and not as dry?

No temp control required for this recipe, during fermentation?

I keep it at ale temps for primary ferment (65-72) them ambient basement temps for secondary (50's).

So, it's been a week since I made my batch using S-04 ale yeast. Gravity today shows it's still way up there at 1.015. Is that normal after 1 week? I'll give it one more week and check it, but I'm a little concerned that it may not dry out... the yeast has mostly dropped and it's starting to look somewhat clear.

I've never used an ale yeast when making this. It's my understanding that it ale yeast won't dry it out as much as a cider yeast but I have no first hand knowledge of it.
