Today I was tottering about Wal-Fart and I discovered that Musselmsn's Apple Cider was but $1.50 per gallon! A quick mental calculation revealed that I could make 5 gallons of hard cider for only $7.50. So, I tossed 5 gallon in the cart and started looking about for what kind of cider I should brew. Nancy suggested a cherry cider and that sounded good to me. So we went with a simple dark cherry cider for the next batch.
Today, I made a new cider. The pumpkin cider (6-006) turned out well but I want more of a pumpkin pie flavor. I want something that is sweeter, creamier, and tastier than just a pumpkin cider. I am not sure how to accomplish this other than by adding malt. This is the first time I have played with malt so I hope I used it correctly. Also, I used pumpkin pie mix rather than just pumpkin to incorporate more spices and sweetness. Hopefully this will work.
