Well, the cider didn’t turn out how I liked at all. I think partially from putting the mulling spices in at primary, and partially due to the yeast culture I used… it said it was a cider yeast, but everything’s turning out rather beery.
Pretty sure the rest of the batches I made with it will be turning out similarly, unfortunately.
I’ve got a new yeast to try for the next batch though, and will be trying for a more basic dry cider. No spices, no funny business, just a clean cider.
Also been looking at this kit on northernbrewer.com, the 1 gallon White House Honey Ale. Seems to be a beer rather to my taste, and it might be nice to try something new.
