    I never tried it. But it can't be to good when you can't even give it away.

    No way.

    My cousin is a sales rep for Bayer and he says mixing alcohol with sugar is the best.

    The best.

    He said something about it paying for copper plumbing in a summer cottage. I don't know how this is possible, but my dentist said something similar once about carbonated drinks in general.

    Go figure.

    Hey, I like hard cider, and if the rioters don’t like it, we’ll that’s just one more reason for me to drink it.

    Hard cider is quite tasty but it's a one and done drink for me. It's either too sweet to drink more than one or it's so dry it gives me heartburn. I'll stick to ales and whisky.

    Where I grew up in upstate New York, hard cider was very popular. Didn’t take much to make it. Just let it sit out at room temperature for a while is all it took.

    I had an uncle that used to make “Apple Jack” when the weather got below freezing. That had a real kick to it.

    Wyder’s pear cider is great. There is a Scandinavian strawberry lime cider that is outstanding as well.

    I think Dickens Cider is the best

    Well I used to like regular cider, now tho I dont drink "which is ironic". Maybe I'll give some hard cider a sip some day. I'd prefer sour instead of sweet tho, a little sharp as well to cut the dust.

    'course where this particular Walgreens was I'm betting the 16 oz Colt 45s were the first to go. Bag and all.

    Making it got part of my family through the depression until paying off the feds got too expensive.
