I made a 3 gallon batch of cider and dry hopped it with .5oz of cascade. It was awesome. There is another thread on the cider forum somewhere which is where I got the recipe. I've also dry-hopped with centennial...I don't recommend that. When I do it again--and I will--I'll be using cascade again.

Yes, it is gluten free. All hops are gluten free. I actually only brew gf and if that is something you are interested in there is actually an excellent forum on here for GF brewing.

Do you have any additions or changes you do to Brandon O's recipe?

I will do one with cascade

Now maybe a Belgian hop? Or German?
Or English? (I'm assuming cascade hop is American)

I remember correctly I once tried a cider that had been hopped with Amarillo hops. What about trying Willamette? It's mild, slightly spicy, fruity, floral, a little earthy. Sounds like something that might compliment a cider.

Sounds good... What cider had Amarillo and tell me about it. I've never used hops...

I doubled checked my facts and I was only partly correct about the Amarillo hops in the cider I tasted. The cider is Reverend Nat's Hallelujah hopricot. This cider has it all. apples Apricot juice and a combo of Cascade hops and amarillo hops. Check out their site:

If your interested in other hopped ciders type in ciders for hop heads. There is a pretty good online story about 4 or 5 different hopped ciders.

I am currently dry hopping three one gallon batches that I'm making for two friends and my father. I use Czech Saaz for all my ciders. I normally use about 0.1 oz per gallon (using pellets) and I let the hops sit for 4-7 days. I use tea bags and empty out the tea. Then I tie off one end and put the hops and one glass marble into the bag. then I tie off the other end with the string so i can suspend the hops about in the middle so it wont sink all the way. Then I dunk the bags in Star San solution to kill off anything bad. The slight bitterness and aroma really compliments the sweet/slight tartness of the cider.

I've had dry hopped ciders with cascade, simcoe, xythos, and sorachi ace. I really like the cascade and simcoe. The sorachi ace i did myself and it is still kind of in development, but the hop flavor was pretty good.

I just kegged one that was dry hopped with a half oz of Cluster for 10 days. The citrus notes work really well IMHO.

I'm very interested in all this as well. Though I haven't made a cider yet..... Could you try steeping the hops around 150 degrees like we do with specialty grains??? And also what about Chinook hops? Bet they'd be great in one and +1 to cascade hops!
