    anything below 70 or so but 60 is probably around perfect. truly, that yeast doesn't much care.

    I am getting real curious about what this is going to taste like .....
    How long are you planning to age it?

    i would actually bulk age the thing for a solid year anyway. then bottle and wait another year. then sample. will probably be crazy awesome at around year 4 or 5

    Its been like 12 years since I bought juice concentrate at a store, so I literally have no idea of even the ball park figure here. So I'll just assume that you could have bought a moderately price compact car from a dealership for the amount you spent on this hooch.

    Do cider makers typically wait years to drink cider? Seems like a long time for anything. I'll stick to beer, I'm way too impatient.
