      Andrew Lea (Craft Cider Making) replied to a similar question on Cider Workshop about a week ago. "Target pH for fermentation control...

      Chalkyt replied to the thread Tartness.

      This is a probably a question for moderators. The forum page has gone weird and I can't see any link to a moderator to seek some advice...

      Chalkyt replied to the thread Dark Fruits Cider.
      I am going down a similar path with some trial 2 litre (1/2 gallon) batches of apple/cherry and apple/blackberry cider. I have an...
