tricks I learn thru experience brewing cider:

* sterilize everything. You'll get an 'off' flavor if anything but yeast gets into your brew

* Add back some unbrewed cider into your final product. Without that, the finished product tends to be very 'dry' as all the sugar has been fermented into alcohol.

* Share with your friends.

Hi Pam
The apple wine [cider] was a bummer. Somehow doing just a small one gal. batch I got a bug in it somewhere's along the line. I sterilize everything pretty carefully but every once in a while something errant happens. It got tossed as I didn't need the vinegar.
The welches red grape finally stopped working about two weeks ago and now I need to find a couple of hours and about 35 bottles and some shelf space in the cold room. Taste wise it turned out pretty good with about a 12% alcohol rating.
