I also recently made a spiced cider that was bottled 4 days ago upon bottling it was perfectly spiced my recipe? Just some trade joes spiced cider and corn sugar! This doesn't give you the flexibility to change the spices to your personal preference but its simple enough and tasted great!

Love using cardamom, Iv'e used it in 3 ciders so far in place of ginger.

I would love to see some before, during, and after pictures of the entire process! It would help all of us rookies out....

I decided to try a variation on this recipe. Almost identical except using d47 yeast( ran out of coopers) and chai tea instead of the whole spices. and slightly less sugar(1 cup caramel instead of 1.5) with the idea of a lower ABV. I may have to add more spices, I don't know that two tea bags (large, loose leaf with whole spices) will be good enough.

I'll add some pictures today. My family has forbidden me from gifting any of this batch
