The cider is great, too. It's a hair under 6 % ABV so it has a perfect draught cider taste, very much like Strongbow. It's nice and dry with a little sweetness (I would call it semi-sweet), nice fruity apple character, a little tartness, and a slight hint of tannic vinous flavor. S-04 was a perfect choice for the yeast, definitely left the apple character that I was looking for. I am really looking forward to experimenting with cider in the future. A lot about it is much easier than making beer, and certainly faster, so that leaves a lot of room for experimentation. I definitely want to try some different juices, since I think that my yeast choice was just about right for this one.
