Got too many gallons in secondaries aging and waiting to be bottled. Need to drink some cider to free up carboys. Probably won't make more until apple season.
Ditto. I only make cider in October, so this post is a bit early for some of us traditionalists in the northern hemisphere. Still have a little good cider left from 2015, will probably make another 6 gallons or so this October 2016. Maybe 7 gallons, somewhere in there. I've nailed down my favorite yeast beyond any doubt: Cote des Blancs. No need to experiment with yeasts anymore although I probably will anyway on one or two batches, for fun. This year I might also try some different stuff, maybe a perry, or add a touch of clove (not cinnamon). Also would like to toy even more with cysers, I had a cyser with mulberries that turned out wonderful this past season and might like to try maybe a grape cyser (apple pyment?) or mango or something or other. I'll always love cider but I'm starting to develop a taste for meads now... not to mention every beer style in the universe as well! I make it all.

Cheers to all on your cider-making adventures this year!

5 Gallons Motts Apple Juice, 36 Oz Brown Sugar and 2 Cans Motts Apple Juice Concentrate. Safale US-04 Yeast started 24 hours prior to pitch - 1/2 Vanilla Bean, 1 clove and 1 cinnamon stick in secondary. (Very Happy with this.)

12 + 5 = 17

I'm about to start drinking the 26 gallons from the fall. I let it sit for 6 months before drinking. I only brew cider once a year so I brew in large quantities.

I'm not sure if my wife would prefer for me to ferment lots all in one go, or if she'd rather that I do a bunch of little batches. So I mix it up.

Hmmm, some thread maintenance is needed:

43 +1 = 44 -- from Hankhill11

44 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 51 -- from JBOGAN

51 + 5 + 5 = 61 -- from maxtpower

I just started another 5 gallons with local orchard juice at 1.050. No extra sugar added, just some pectic enzyme. Trying S04 for the first time. Had a pack in the fridge with a 06/16 date on it so I figured I'd give it a go.

I might try to get one more batch started this month. Sounds like my local orchard is going to stop pressing juice at the end of the month.

61 + 5 = 66

12 gallons of pineapple cider.

Everyone liked the pineapple cider so much I had to immediately follow up with another batch. After I brew my next beer I think I am going to make a pomegranate cider.

6 gallons Graham's English Cider which I oopsed my way into an OG of 1.068

159.5 + 12.5 = 172

BTW Mangrove Jack's M02 cider yeast is a winner so far, I just started using it and am a big fan.

172+1 = 173

Just started a gallon test batch with 1/8 tsp crushed grains of paradise, the juice of one lime and 4 apples, sliced. I'm using Lalvin D47 yeast to try and preserve as much apple flavor as possible.
