Recipe Type: Extract Yeast: Red Star Montrachet Yeast Starter: Nope Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: None Batch Size (Gallons): 4 Original Gravity: 1.058 Final Gravity: 1.002 Boiling Time (Minutes): None Color: Blush Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 Weeks at 70-72


Cherry Bomb Cider
4 Gal Whitehouse 100% Apple Juice
3 cans Old Orchard Premium Pom/Cherry Concentrate
3 Quarts spring water
1lb Domino sugar

Mix in carboy. I recommend adding the sugar a little at a time so it mixes/dissolves. Rehydrate yeast, pitch, wait. I kegged mine after 3 weeks in primary.

This cider finishes dry and has some tartness. I haven't tried it fully carbed yet but it was super good already. It has a nice cherry apple after taste. It should be fully carbonated by tomorrow so I will repost then.

I've tried the cider again and it's real tart. I like it. We've now over carbed it so it's still a little weird. Gonna let the keg warm up and try again.
