Update:

My batch of Hawaiian (Mango, Pineapple, Guava) Hard Apple Cider just bottled. I can't wait for them to get carbed. My store didn't have strawberry flavoring, so I used cranberry...it's very tart but we'll see how it ages.

One thing to note: my FG was .999. I think it's because the champagne yeast already started carbing the cider in the fermenter, and the carbonation (CO2 bubbles) were lighter than water and reduced the FG. Nothing I'm going to worry about, just something cool to share.

hrm. and i was just wondering what i was going to with the primary i cleaned out yesterday...

if you used an ale yeast instead of a champagne yeast, would that yield sweeter results without the lactose?

I have made a variation of this recipe and used Safale SO 4. It is sweeter but the raspberry flavoring is on the tart side. I split the batch and sweetened them with spleda and lactose. It still is a little on the tart side but I want it age a while longer before adding more. If I like it I'll post the recipe later

So when you add the ingredients at bottling, how do you mix them in? Isn't there a layer of sediment at the bottom? Also, when I boil the priming sugar, can I put the lactose in with it so it is easier to mix?

I have made this recipe and it was quite nice! SWMBO loves it and now I get to purchase a kegging system with the potential savings LOL. No more 'malt beverage' purchases anymore. I did modify the 3rd and 4th batches I made by adding some oregon raspberry puree in the primary. Now the hard part - waiting.

anyone know if I could substitute a package of Mutons active brewing yeast (6 oz) for the package of Red Star Champagne yeast? Just got a kit today and upgraded the yeast and this is a spare package and wondered if I can use it. If not, where would I find the Red Star? It's not at my local grocery store, would I have to go to my LHBS?

Use the RedStar Montrachet or Curvee

Here's a video of the OP's raspberry apple cider fermenting. It went into the carboy on 02/16. To the right is an American Amber Ale that went into primary on 02/13.

Made a batch of this a few weeks ago, but I made it five gallons, and added an extra LB of corn sugar, and about a half LB of table sugar. I'll let you know how it turns out!
