The recipe uses store bought apple juice with no added preservatives or additives.
The store bought juice has an expiration date of April 2014.
Will the cider expire on this date also, or has the process of turning it into alcohol changed the expiration date?
Another thing is if the juice was passed its expiration date before making the cider will that be an issue? The juice tasted fine and I have had a sample of the cider and it tastes really good.
Here is the steps to make it.
21L Juice (7bottles)
Yeast Nutrient (Boil up raisins (that don’t have sulphite on them) and small amount of water, mash up the raisins and simmer)
10- 14Cup’s corn sugar or dextrose (the more sugar the more kick it will have)
1 Lalvin EC1118 Yeast
Steps 1.Boil up yeast nutrient and mash up raisins
2.Take out a little juice from the bottle and add sugar.
3.Shake out the sugar(even do this for the fermenter batch as it saves time and stirring)
4.Put in the yeast nutrient(make sure that it isn’t still too hot) and shake the bottle
5.Add the yeast and shake the bottle a. If you are making a fermenter size batch then pour it all in the fermenter
6.Leave that until the fermenter has stopped bubbling and leave for a few days.
