Hard Apple Cider Recipe


I was reading on a thread about the cider recipe. Could you repeat it for me?

I just started a batch from store-bought apple juice today. I bought one gallon of juice, added 1/2 tsp acid blend (citric, malic, and tartaric acids), and half a packet of Fermentis SAF-S04 ale yeast. After less than an hour, it is already fermenting!

Oh, I did pour out about two glasses worth of juice first. Ther fermentation bubbles up a bit, so I didn't want to make a mess. I also fitted a #8.5 rubber stopper and an airlock to the top. This lets out the CO2 gas, but won't let outside air, contaminants, or bugs in.

We took a bottle of this hard cider on our maiden voyage last weekend. It went well with the cool fall evening and my unsuccessful camp fire (wet wood). Next weekend, we'll be spending just one night at a campground in PA (Codorus state park)... this time I'll have a "fire log" to start the camp fire, and another bottle of cider. I also have two more gallons fermenting... this time it is cider from the farm near my in-laws' house in Gettysburg.

By the way, I added potassium sorbate (sorbic acid) and sweetened it with about 1 cup of unfrozen frozen apple juice concentrate. The potassium sorbate keeps the little yeasties from eating the apple juice concentrate, and is a good antioxidant and natural preservative.

I can already see that I will be making a lot of cider this year. I think my next batch will be a blackberry/honey cider (or cyser).

We make a soft cider from crabb apples in the fall, the recipe is really simple pick the apples, wash them, then cut them in half, fill a 5 gallon pail 3\4 full then add 3 teaspoons creme of tarter, cover with boiling water them let sit for 3-5 days. Pour the juice through cheesecloth and sweeten to taste with sugar syrup. Freeze the juice in plastic jugs keeps forever.

If you can make the juice into hard cider, then "Jack it" by putting a coil of rope into the bucket and let it freeze then pull it and out knock the ice off, after few freezings you will have apple liquer.
