Here's a recipe for you;

                        APPLE CIDER

Yield: depending upone the variety of apple, you will require approx.
25 lbs of fruit for 4 litres of juice.  A blend of bitter and sweet
apples will give best results.

Ingredients.                    Metric          Imperial

Fresh apple juice               4 litres                1 gallon
Sugar (corn or granulated)      TO S.G.  1.060
Pectic Enzyme                   1/2  tsp                1/2  tsp
Grape Tannin                    1/2  tsp                1/2  tsp
Yeast Nutrient                  1/2  tsp                1/2  tsp
Campden tablets (dissolved in   2               2
                       1 cup water)
Wine Yeast                      Lalvin

Statting specific gravity should be 1.060               Acid 4 g/L

        Direction

Crush apples.  Sprinkle with Campden solution during crushing.  Put
crushed apples in nylon straining bag and press.  Add Pectic Enzyme.
Allow juice to settle overnight in covered primary fermentor.  Next
day syphon carefully to remonve juice from apple solids.  Adjust
Specific Gravity to 1.060.  Add all other ingredients including yeast.
Ferment for 2 to 3 days or until S.G. is 1.020.  Rack into secondary
fermentor and attach fermentation lock.  Rack again in 10 days adding
1/4 tsp Anti-Oxidant powder per 4 litres.

When Cider is clear and stable, syphon back into primary, adding for
each 4 litres - 75g Corn Sugar.  Gently stir and syphon into pressure
bottles.  Cap and age 3 months.

Happy Drinking
