I've only made cider once before. Very basic, 1 Gallon Juice and a half pound of corn sugar.

I have three 1 Gallon batches going now.
My local store has 1 Gallon glass jugs of Murray's natural no-preservative cider for $6. http://www.murraycider.com/products.html

Batch 1. Basic Cider
Apple Cider, a little brown sugar, clove and cinnamon

Batch 2. Cherry - Apple
Apple Cider, 100% Black Cherry Juice, corn sugar

Batch 3. Cobbler Cider
Apple Cider, a dash of Cherry Juice, 2 Ripe Peaches sliced, brown sugar, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon

All have Fermax, Pectin, and Lalvin D-47 White Wine Yeast.

I just threw them together on the fly, We'll see how they turn out.

Haha, I know.
Stupid camera is out of batteries.

Five bubbling airlocks in the cabinet looks so good too.

I'm assuming you mean pectinase enzyme?

sounds really good, great thing is you can buy it right in the fermenter! I was looking at the site and that apple cherry cider looks like a really tempting experiment also.
