NOTE: It is recommended that you use a 2 gallon carboy or fermentation bucket for this recipe. If you are using a 1 gallon glass carboy, do not fill cider above the top shoulder of the carboy.
Ingredients: (for 1 gallon)
1.5 pounds clover honey
1.5 pounds wildflower honey
1 gallon cider
2 campden tablets
ale yeast (Nottingham or Safale S-04)
Mix everything except the yeast.
Let sit in fermenter with airlock for 24 hours.
Rack to secondary when fermentation slows.
Bottle or rack to keg when still.
Force carbonate if desired.
Condition for as long as you can stand it. (At least 3 months, 6 would be better).
For bigger batches, multiply ingredients by the number of gallons you plan on making. Consider the size of your fermenter, you may want to do 1 gallon smaller. For example, in a 6 gallon carboy, use 5 times the ingredients, not 6.
