Default making a cider from motts apple juice

Is vitamin c bad for yeast growth? And is there any particular spices I should know about for the cider?

Vitamin c is fine.


Not sure what you mean about spices? I have a batch going with sunripe apple juice, cinnamon, clove and cardamom going right now that smells divine, but obviously it's not finished yet.

I've never fermented juice with ascorbic acid, but I've read it gives a tart flavor to the end product. Might be something to keep in mind if the end product is tart. I bet age would take care of that anyway.

I am getting ready to make Caramel Apple Mead as posted in a popular recipe thread. But as far as spices you can use vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, mace, ginger, etc. You may consider making a basic plain version and adding spices later during aging. Have fun!

The abscorbic acid is used as an antioxidant, will cause no harm or problem when fermenting.

Thanks. A relative got me a Mr beer kit for Christmas not realizing my brews are a little more advanced than that. So I decided screw it, I'll make a cider. Sounds like good advice.

Good use of that equipment! I am trying a cinnamon/nutmeg/bitter orange peel combo in my latest batch.
