Quick recipe for a cider using apple and white-grape-peach juice from Wegmans.
- 2 gal white grape peach juice (100% juice from concentrate)
- 1 gal “Natural Style” apple juice (100% juice)
- 1/2 oz Citra hops.
- 1 vial WLP001
- 0.25 tsp yeast nutrient
// Pour apple juice, yeast, and nutrient into carboy. Brewed 5/5/16. Signs of fermentation about 6 hours after pitching. //
5/12/16: Fermentation still going strong (1″ layer of yeast on top), but took a sample anyway. Gravity at 1020. Slightly sweet, but good peach flavor. I could live with something more tropical, so added 1/2 oz Citra pellets to the carboy and shook.
5/18/15: Fermentation seemed to still be going strong up until today when it abruptly stopped. Gravity at 1.000 – go figure. Pretty thin, slightly tart, but overall pleasant fruity peach and apple flavors. Moved to the fridge to crash cool.
5/21/15: Kegged and carbing at 15 psi for 1 day. Should carbonate pretty quick because it’s only 3 gallons, and it’s so thin. Tasting notes.
