Soooo... I'm totally a newbie here and this is my first batch of cider. I have a fermentation bucket with an airlock. I used Lalvin dried wine yeast. I made my cider about a month ago using apples. Simmered them on the stove (after juicing them) and then put it all together. I also added sugar to the mix per one recipe to raise the alcohol content.
I did NOT get a hydrometer until week 2 so I had no base measurement there. At week 2 it was ... ummm... 1.031. Week 3 was 1.01. Week 4 (this past weekend) it was a little less than that.
At week 3 it tasted like decent tasting red wine - slightly sweet. Week 4 it tastes like plain red wine - sharp in my taste but I don't really like wine.
So - am I screwed? Or, can I just let it continue to sit and will it eventually start tasting like cider?
