So I followed the 5 day sweet country cider recipe.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f81/5-da...-cider-265986/

I used 3 gallons cider and about 2.5 gallons apple juice and then added sugar to an OG of 1.08, FG was 1.36 and the cider was obviously still very cloudy. I bottled and let it lightly carbonate over about 5 hours than I stovetop pasturized.

The cider taste pretty good, the carbonation is nice. But the yeasty smell when I pop the top and the slight yeasty taste is driving me up the wall. Im very careful with my pour to leave everything on the bottom. Is there any way to get rid of this with such a short time frame cider recipe? I was thinking about doing another 5.5 gallons but transfering out of my bottling bucket, to glass jugs, cold crashing for 72 hours, and then back to the bucket before I bottle next time...

Anything I can do or add?
