Make hard cider from apples

This daring docu-drama explores the esoteric underground of hard-cider brewing. This fast paced thriller is sure to captivate the mind, and leave you on the edge of your seat.

There are two different methods used to make this hard cider. 5 gallons of fresh cider with a starting specific gravity of 12 were pitched with White Labs liquid English Cider Yeast. This should yield around 7% alcohol. Or then, 5 gallons of fresh cider made with corn sugar until specific gravity was raised from 12 to 16.5, pitched with Red Star champagne yeast. This should produce around 10% alcohol content. Each bottle was primed with a little corn sugar. This should carbonate the contents and produce a nice sparkling cider. It is best consumed chilled, and in large quantities. Watch this video home-brewing tutorial and learn how to ferment apples into a hard apple cider.
