Heys

I made some cider batches and i love it.
Last sunday i started an hopped cider, everyone seems to be talking about it on youtube and it looks delicious

I just bought 5L of 100% apple juice, added 550g of white sugar and pitched lalvin-D47.
I already have cascade hops and when it stops fermenting i will add 25g /30g of hop pellets for about 10 days.
On bottling time i will add white sugar to the bottles to carbonate.

Cheers

Have you tasted it yet? I made a 3 gallon batch a month or so ago. I just added all my random hops and a lime. I racked it two weeks ago. Tasted..... Interesting.... Too much lime maybe.... Going to do the same thing tho. Going to add some cascade, let it sit, then bottle in a week or two after. Even with the heavy lime, once it's cold and carbed, it should be good!

Are you carbing or going to leave still?

Mmmmmm. Nice! I bottled mine on Tuesday. I was afraid it was going to suck because I added lime in primary.....but, a friend and I tried two last night. They weren't fully carbed , but it was enough to tell me how tasty they are going to be in a few weeks!

I was at my good beer store last night and discovered a hopped vodka!

Did you hop it in primary or secondary, also you left it about one and a half weeks in there. How much flavor did it give you?
