So I took my first shot at an apple cider recently. It has been in the primary for about a month and a half so far. All the sediment has dropped leaving it very clean. So I decided to use the thief and take a taste. It tastes like a good white wine with little to no apple tastes. Since I have not done this before I don't really know what to expect. Will the apple flavor come with age? Do I need to do something in a secondary? I want a dry product but still have a apple note. And assistance would help.
5 gallons of farm fresh apple cider
1 lbs of light brown sugar
1 lbs of honey
Dry wine yeast ( can't remember what my LHBS recommended)
