Concentration Cider

Concentration Cider

Brew day, we bought 6 cans of apple juice concentrate and a  Cider yeast then did 10 minuets of Googleing and came up with this. It produced 2 gallons and I fermented for one week not expecting it to be extremely hard.

Bottling day, to charge the bottles I just used one can of apple juice concentrate, it was a lot more sugar than it needed so I had to check them frequently. The reason for so much concentrate I wanted it to be sweet.

Opening day, its very sweet and low in alcohol, very drinkable but you need a bunch to get a buzz. It still ad a little yeast smell when first opened, but longer we leave them in the bottles the less the smell. Next time well ferment it longer and use less sugar on bottling day
