Cran-Cinnamon Sweet Cider
- 10 cans frozen apple juice concentrate
- 3 cans frozen cranberry juice concentrate
- 1.5 cups brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 cup white sugar
- Dry red wine yeast
…and I kind of broke my hydrometer so I never actually took the original gravity. But I’m sure it’s damn strong.
Add the frozen fruit concentrate into the 5 gallon fermenter, and full with water. Add the sugar, cinnamon, and yeast. Gently stir. Wait approximately 1 week until the wort completes fermentation, and transfer to the secondary (adding any clarifying agents/gelatin that you prefer). Let the cider sit for approximately 2-3 weeks in the secondary, and bottle. Use about 1/2 cup of bottling sugar, rather than the usual amount — this stuff is highly carbonated as is. Chill well before serving.
