Hard Cider 2013

I made up a quick batch of hard apple cider on January 2, 2013.  I didn’t add any extra sugar, just used the natural sugars in the juice.


1 gallon

SG 12 (1.048)

Added Lavlin 71B-1122 yeast

Yeast energizer

As of today, February 2, the SG is 5 (1.007), tastes very dry and super tart.  This puts it at 4.9% abv.  I have a strong desire to experiment a little with this, freeze it and make ‘applejack‘.  I would likely end up with just 12 oz of around ~20% or so, but I am really curious about how this stuff tastes.  Thoughts?
