Over the weekend I started my first attempt making homemade hard cider. Below is what I have done thus far...
5 Gallons McCutchens Unfiltered Pasteurized Apple Cider (local orchard)
2 Pounds Dark Brown Sugar
Yeast (An Ale Type of Yeast)
I started the brew this past Friday (3 days ago). I anticipate it will be ready for bottling in two weeks... hopefully! Then all that should be left, will be to wait for the bottles to carbonate, which, i am unsure as of how long that will take.
I also did not put in a pectin enzyme, so the cider will stay cloudy like it is in the picture. If the cider turns out well, next time I will try a pectin enzyme to clear it up.
I am new to this, so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
