Beer Style: Common Cider (27A)
Recipe Type: other
Yield: 5 US gallons

Common Cider

Description:

Definitely something to be enjoyed in moderation. It is however absolutely wonderful. The spices give it a kind of christmas-y feel that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy (or maybe thats the alcohol 8*). This would also make some absolutely WICKED apple-jack if someone were to freeze some of the finished product (though I would never advocate such irresponsible, illegal and dangerous behaviour ;-).

Ingredients:

  • 3 gal fresh (unpasteurized etc.) apple cider
  • 4 lbs light brown sugar
  • 1 lb dark brown sugar
  • 9 grams of crushed cinnamon stick
  • 10 whole cloves (crushed before adding)
  • 1 tsp yeast energizer (the kind that's a mixture of urea and B-vitamins)
  • 10 g of Lalvin 71B-1122

Procedure:

Dissolve sugar in cider (you can warm it to help the sugar dissolve) and add everything to your fermenter.

Fermeneted wildly in primary for about 2 weeks then took about 7 weeks in secondary to clear sufficiently to bottle. I dont remember what the abv works out to be on this stuff but its HIGH.
