In brewing a cider, do I need to be as concerned with exposure to light as I do with beer?

1 Answer 1


Hops react with light to create skunky flavors. So long as you didn't use hops in your cider (not unheard of), you don't need to be overly concerned about light. I still wouldn't recommend fermenting or storing it in direct sunlight if at all possible.
