Cider recipe help..
Wondering if you could help with a recipe?
So I went out today and got 7kg of granny smith apples 1kg red gala apes (sweet red apples) 2 kg of pears, also have 7g coopers pale ale yeast and loads of sugar, what else will I need? I'm guess more apple juice ? How much to make a 20/23 ltr batch around the 5% mark?
I don't my ciders dry but sounds like it could be reasonably sweet anyhow.
Do I need champagne yeast?
So far a run down,
7kg granny smith apples
1kg sweet gala apples
2kg of pears
1 pkt coopers pale ale yeast (7g)
???? Castor/brown(raw) sugar. ????
What else do you think I need?
