Fall Cider

  beer glass color indicator
Beer Style: cider
Recipe Type: other
This stuff is peaking after 3 months in the bottle, IMHO.
  • 6 gallons, fresh apple cider (no preservatives)
  • 3 teaspoon, acid blend
  • 1 teaspoon, yeast nutrient
  • 2-1/2 teaspoon, pectic enzyme
OG: 1.055
Primary Ferment: 5 days
Secondary Ferment: 3 weeks
Mix all ingredients except the yeast into the primary, cover and let stand for 24 hours to dissipate SO2 from sulfite. Hydrate yeast in 1 cup water at 95-104 degrees for 5-10 minutes and then pitch into cider with vigorous stirring to aerate. Primary ferment for 5 days. Secondary ferment for 3 weeks. Prime and bottle as usual.
