Beer Style: Common Cider
Recipe Type: other
Yield: 5 US gallons
I did a batch for Christmas last year. I used the following.
I added enough water to yield about 3 gallons of some very potent hard cider. Even with the ale yeast it was about 11% if I remember. After about a month of aging it was too strong, dry, and sharp. It was closer to an apple wine. We drank less than a gallon and left the rest in a nice dark closet. Some months later I gave it another try, delicious, still strong as hell, a couple of glasses will get you going.
