Thread: A simple cyser

  1. Default A simple cyser

    Heres one that I have aging right now, let me know what you think:

    6 lbs Clover honey
    3 gals apple juice
    4 sticks Cinnamon
    3 tmp nutmeg
    1 pkg Red Star Champagne Yeast

    I dissolved the honey into the apple juice, and pitched the yeast. At then end of primary fermentation, I added the cinnamon and nutmeg to the mix.

    Starting Gravity 1.108
    Ending Gravity 1.000

    Started on 7/19/04

    8/31/04 racked, strong alcohol taste and smell. Spices added.

    11/25/04 very clear, much softer taste. apple taste noticable. *very* dry. Bottled and stored in 375ml bottles.

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Do you like it? That's the important thing since it's bottled.

    I use more honey in my cyser, but I have a sweet tooth. I don't use champagne yeast much anymore because I like the Lalvin line of yeasts better, but again, that's personal preference and not a rule of thumb.


    Is it tasty . . . precious?

    Just renaming it a simple spiced Cyser. How do you like it dry?

    It's not bad dry, but I think it still needs a bit of time to age. Part of the problem might be the alcohol content thought. Since it hasn't had time to age out, I don't fully know just yet. Right now, it tastes really good cut with apple juice.
