Two pronged question.
Last summer I made a delightful apple cider (non alcoholic) then came into a lot of peaches. Then learned peaches have their flavor ferment out and become dry. We wanted an apple cider that was dry so we did a 5gal batch half apple and half peach. Tasted like hooch. Ideas??


Also would love to make a tart/dry cherry cider. Any recipes?

Hi Scurvy! Just saw this post. A good way to do that would be to add some cherry/apple concentrate to your base cider. If you like the cider you are drinking now, don't change it, just add to it while its in your secondary fermenter to give it the cherry taste. Hope that helps! :-)
