Weekend cider

Post by Rookie » Tue Jul 04, 2023 2:57 pm

I plan to do my yearly cider batch in a few days. I usually use EC-1118 and get a pretty dry result. This year I'm going to use an ale yeast in an attempt to get a less dry result.
I'm just here for the beer.

Confused! Why does it say 'cider' on the bottles? Is it already fermented? I thought you made your own.

I think in the US cider = apple juice and hard cider = cider

For some, unknown to me, reason non fermented apple squeezings are called cider or, some brands, juice. And after fermentation called hard cider.
