Two months in primary, two months bottle conditioning, and this stuff is smooth and delicious!

A for the recipe, it was a one gallon batch, my first cider. I used one gallon of fresh apple cider from Trader Joe's, and added about a tablespoon of cinnamon, and let it ferment. For yeast, I just used a leftover packet of yeast from my Brooklyn Brew Shop kit. Next time, I may add cinnamon and maybe some nutmeg, at bottling. Has anyone done that? I feel like having the cinnamon in during fermentation gave it some strange flavors early on (they've mostly mellowed out by now). And then carbed with corn sugar, just like a beer.

Did you add any sugar to the primary?
If yes what type of sugar?

Oh! Yes I actually did add sugar when I fermented in the primary! It was about 4 or 5 months ago, and I didn't take any notes, and it was before I had a hydrometer. However, I think I added about one or two cups of brown sugar.

Thanks.


I've used white cane and raw cane. Gonna try brown next. So far I've only used brown to prime.

Cool! If you're going to use cinnamon, I'd recommend adding it post fermentation. I have a slight of flavor that I think is due to the cinnamon in the primary.

Yup, check the thread: Spiced Cider, a little piece of home

I am drinking this now and am really pleased with how nice the cinnamon and nutmeg came together.
