To date the best I've got is the basic recipe described above (with obvious cambden tablet, etc refinements). This was done by my homebrew store (a photocopy of one page in -I do believe TCJOH?). This would imply that there are no books.... Could this be? re: champagne yeast I was always under the impression that you used champagne yeast in cider to get the high (reasonable) alcohol content- but now that I think about it wouldn't ale or lager yeast die sooner thereby resulting in a sweeter cider ( and eliminate the need for fixins)? Thanks to all those who suggested either freezing at some sg or adding fresh (soft) cider just before bottling (or after). One problem though- as far as I can recall primary fermentation takes the sg pretty far down (1.010-1.015?) so what am I supposed to do- bottle it 4 days after initial fermentation? Update on the cider front: My new batch is fermenting just beautifully after 4 days in the primary (and I'm getting more and more impatient). mark noworol at ecf.toronto.edu \030 Return to table of contents
