Fig Bay Leaf Apple Cider

Fermentation Time :  3 Days (82.4°F)

Refrigeration Time : 5 Days

Fermentation Temperature : 59~79°F

Alcohol Content : 8.0%

Description

This cider is heavier than standard apple cider since bay leaf and figs give it more body. The natural sugars released from the fruit bring forward a sweetness from the figs that perfectly complements the tart apple tones. Bay leaf adds a subtle woody flavor to this cider which makes it a cozy drink to enjoy throughout the colder days of fall and winter. Serve your fig and bay leaf apple cider chilled, but without ice, since it will dilute your beverage and take away from its depth.

Tips: Please use 100% pure or freshly pressed apple juice since the preservative will prohibit yeast from growing. Please use clear apple juice for this recipe in order to get clear cider. If you use the cloudy one, the result of cider will be cloudy, too.
