This might be a silly question but how do I reduce the alcohol content in my home brew cider.
I have done two tests and they are coming out about 8% for the cider. I would like to bring it down to about 4-5%
Nothing really fancy, here: dilute it with water.
You may use apple juice to dilute it as well, if you like to keep more flavor than if you use water...
If my maths are good, if you add as much liquid as you already have, it should cut the alcohol percentage from 8% to 4%.
If your recipe includes adding any sugars then you can just leave those out or reduce the amounts as well.
