    Seeking yeast recommendations

    Hey everyone, I put my third batch in the fermenter on Friday night, and used the last yeast packet that came with my super noob cider kit. My ultimate goal is a slightly sweet and slightly tart cider, carbonation optional. I'm guessing I can't go get they yeast they have in the baking aisle...

    Carbonation Question

    Hey everyone, thanks for the advice! Carbonating really helped the flavor, it was a bit bland and dry when i tried it before bottling. Can't wait to see how my next batch comes out!

    New guy working on his first batch

    Hey everyone, thanks for all of the input. My first batch was chilled yesterday, and sampled by me today and yesterday. The bland taste was mostly fixed by the carbonation and chilling, but I'd like it a little sweeter with a more obvious apple taste. The dryness was almost completely gone...

    Carbonation Question

    Hey everyone, Quick question here. As some of you know, I recently bottled my first batch, but I can't see much visible evidence of carbonation. Do I need to be worried, or is it just less visible than fermentation? I'm asking myself a million questions, like if I didn't mix the sugar water...

    New guy working on his first batch

    I'm sure it was the dryness, I am new to the lingo. The smell threw me off more than the taste. I knew it would be a little different, and it's not bad per se. Just different, and not something that I would sell. The goal of this batch wasn't to make a delicious cider, or even a cider that...

    I bottled my first batch, gonna leave it for another 10 days to carbonate. I wasn't sure just how much headspace to leave in the bottles so I played it safe. Upon sampling, even after adding priming sugar it honestly tasted a little bland to me. I'm not sure if that's a product of how much...

    New guy working on his first batch

    Thanks Mad, there's a farmer's market right around the corner, but honestly I think it's a bit early for that (It still flirts with 90F here) but I'll be looking for the freshest juice I can find. Goal is to eventually be pressing my own, but that opens up an entirely new can of worms with...

    New guy working on his first batch

    Hey everyone, I'm a new member, and a new brewer(does that word apply to cider?) I got a very basic 1Gal kit from my wife as a birthday gift and popped my first batch in on Saturday. It was just simple apple juice (from concentrate, but no other ingredients, not refrigerated) and kit-provided...
