10 Gallons, All Dry


I just locked up my 10 gallons of cider in my fermenters. This batch will be slightly different than my last, but should produce a similar product.

For my last batch I used Briess Dark DME, whereas this time I opted to use Alexander’s Pale LME (in a can). I won’t be divulging my exact amounts and such until I know it tastes good, but this was the main difference from my first 5 gallon batch to my current 10 gallon batch. I also added in some cinnamon and vanilla, not much but just enough to hopefully add a little something to the cider.

Despite debating whether or not to make 5 gallons of the cider sweet, I decided to stick to making it all dry. I like dry cider so I figure that it doesn’t matter if anyone else likes it. Besides, if someone wants it sweet they can just throw sugar in it, like it’s tea…

Expect an update on Poison Apple Dry Malted Cider in 2 to 3 weeks. And if you want me to set aside a bottle or two for you, just let me know.
