Recipe Details
Tasting Notes A bit alcoholic, but a perceivable light sweetness and apple flavor. If you used a sulfide, you will have to aerate your cider before bottling very aggressively for about 15 to 20 minutes to get the egg smell to dissipate.

Procedure Open cans of frozen juice and add to ferment bucket add nutrients You can add 8 oz ff Maltodextrin for a better mouth feel without adding sweetness or alcohol Substitute 4 to 5 cans of 100% frozen Concentrate Cranberry juice for variation.. add water to 5.5 gallons you can add a sulfide to kill any bacteria as done in wine making, but I don't think it is required as this is a processed juice for commercial sale. if you do, let sit for 24 hours. If you used a sulfide, you will have to aerate your cider before bottling very aggressively for about 15 to 20 minutes to get the egg smell to dissipate.
