Most of the juice I use in cider is apple juice from concentrate, water, and ascorbic acid. It has been pasteurized. The cider will be better if you use high quality cider as opposed to excessively filtered apple juice.

If your LHBS has some, it's a good idea to use some pectin enzyme too.
Could you help me out with some brand names maybe I can order some online, rurual AR, have to take a trip to Little Rock to buy anything besides Welch's probably.

Thanks, the wheat part kind of scares me away though. I think I'm going to try a version of this:

I've got some Musselmans cider atm that is destined for hard cider. That was 5.98/gallon. I like a cider instead of a juice for a base when I'm doing a spiced hard cider.

I've got a batch in the fermentor now that is just cheapo members mark juice. That's Sam's Club/Walmart store brand, and it's really as cheap as your probably going to find. just under 4$ a gallon.

Honestly, unless your super rural, you can probably find something that will give you some decent cider in your local supermarket. You just need to read the labels a bit.

You might also want to consider doing a small batch of cider, like 1 gallon or so, until you know if you like it. IMO, hard cider really needs at least a couple months of conditioning before it's good. 6 months is better...

Here's a good thread to look at. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f25/man-...felwein-14860/

OK I think I can do this.

I've had hard cider and I love it, just never made it. I'm guessing White Labs has some sort of cider yeast?

Here is my problem, I'm definately wanting to do the juniper rye ale and I have a milk stout planned. I would like another ale (or cider) that could ferment at the ame temp since I can do 3 at a time in my fermentation cooler.

I think it is time for some serious research. Go to the nearest beer store and buy a ton of beer in styles you are not familiar with. Drink them all and decide what you like........

I just picked up two 1-gallon glass jugs of pasteurized, organic, preservative free, unfiltered apple juice from a local grocery store. Wanted the jugs for mead or a large starter - they were only $7.50 ea. Nothing like "buy carboy, get free juice."

Let us know how the juniper brew goes!
