Hmm... what kind of flavor does cream of tartar add? And how much did you put in the batch?

Cream of tartar doesn't add any flavor. It helps the sugar ferment.

Never heard of that! Awesome to know. I'll have to get some and add it to my collection of wine making goodies.

Just bottled a batch of this, followed the recipe but I added no tannin, malic acid or yeast nutrient. I also added a little cinnamon(I love cinnamony ciders for some reason). Turned out great at ~11% can't wait til it is carb'd up though!

I've got a ginger-nutmeg-clove-cinnamon-allspice-vanilla spice cider going. We'll see how it turns out.

I threw this recipe together tonight but halved it, making just 3 gallons worth. I ended up using Nottingham yeast, and for some reason I forgot to buy pectic enzyme, so I hope that my cider clears on its own. I will be getting a garage fridge at the end of this month, so I might throw it in the fridge when its all done before bottling to clear it up more.. or something.

Good thing is I hit 1.080 exactly
