Cider is made from apples, but by mixing varieties you can get different tasting ciders once the brewing is complete.
A recipe for a ’rounded’ cider.
60% Eating Apples
35% Cooking Apples (Bramleys)
5% Crab apples
This combination provides you with bitterness from the crab apples and tartness from the Bramleys along with the eating apples to make a well rounded brew.
