Because it tastes like liquid apples, and not sugar water like regular apple juice

I love it so much. I've even made my own cider sometimes, but I'm not very good at it.

I'm almost halfway through this 1/2gal, I can't stop myself from drinking it.

I might make some bread with it later...

I have made apple cider from scratch before, it's delicious, but a pain in the ass if you don't have equipment. I hate to say it, because it's already so good on its own, but one of my favorite uses for it is the drink "apple pie". They have moonshine in my area if I want an authentic taste, but Everclear is cheap and easy to get too.

I say get some crackers, a hearty cheese and do something comfy, savor that cider.

what's your current recipe for cider and what yeast are you using(if not natural fermenting)?

Sounds like there's some confusion here.

In America "cider" = apple juice.
But to the rest of the English speaking world, juice is juice and "apple cider" is a fermented alcoholic beverage, similar to beer. In the USA that would be called "hard cider".

also, if it's not 'pure juice not from concentrate', it has to be called a juice drink, ie. apple juice drink or apple drink.

My understanding of cider was like this:

Apple juice = totally filtered apple cider, possibly more additives like more vitamins or water or something
Apple cider = blended/crushed/puree'd/etc apples, not filtered (except for the most biggest chunks/fibers), no additives, just pure drank
Hard cider = naturally fermented (if thats possible?) or fermented cider (not juice)

The way I make cider is to get a big motherfucker of apples, slice them up, blended them/purree'd them, filter out the biggest spices, place in a big ass pot on the stove and simmer it for a while with some spices in it (usually a pinch of ginger, a cinnamon stick, and that's about it, maybe a very small pinch of allspice or clove or nutmeg) then let it cool and put in a big ass jug. Drink when cold. The 1/2gal in my picture is from Halo Farms, it's not their apple juice, which is much different in color, taste, pulp-count, etc.

Never tried to make hard cider, is it easy?

5502145 here.

My point was that in the USA the term "Cider" is poorly defined, whereas everywhere else in the Anglosphere, cider = alcoholic. So it's hardly surprising that the other guy was asking about how it was fermented because to most of the English speaking world, cider = alcohol.

Your definitions sound pretty reasonable to me, but they are not etched in stone. For example, I regularly buy a product which says "cider" on the label, but it is filtered apple juice (no additives, not from concentrate). In the USA the term "cider" is largely meaningless and has no strict definition. Elsewhere it means booze.

>naturally fermented (if thats possible?)
Yes, it is.
wild yeast grows on apples, and other fruit, so it's just a matter of putting it into a fermentation vessel and observing it to make sure the yeast becomes the dominant microorganism. It's how they made cider before lab-grade yeast strains.

Yep. Wild yeast spores are also airborne, so you can ferment just about anything that contains sugar without having to add lab or factory produced yeast.

But it's not. If it's sweet and yellow, you've got juice there, fellow. If it's tangy and brown, you're in cider town.

It was my birthday yesterday so me and my girl when to NY. It was dope.

but part of my present was that she wants to buy me a big ass jar of honey (I used honey on so much shit) so we went to the trenton farmers market. But they were closed when I got there so we just went to halo farms. I got some OJ and AC, didn't pick up any ice cream though, maybe next weekend I'll go back and get some of that dank porkroll they have at Cartlediges Meats

That rule may work for you, but again, it's not universal. Pic related. The contents are 100% apple juice. No additives. Not from concentrate. It's clearly filtered. Yet the label says cider.

Heck, I agree with your opinion on the matter. But just because that's how we define cider vs. juice doesn't mean that everyone else agrees.

I got some cider as a gift yesterday, my parents went to an orchard where it is produced, they filled the container right in front of them from a massive wooden barrel.

Tastes great and gets you nice and drunk.

over here where cider means alcohol pear cider is also called perry and is generally considered superior to the apple variety because it is less acidic
Not sure if pear cider is also called perry in USA though
