I've got a suped up batch of Coopers Ginger beer fermenting at the moment & I'm thinking to myself why not throw a few bottles of Apple juice and some Lactose over the yeast cake when it's finished.

Is this a stupid idea? will the coopers ginger ale yeast/cider combination be horrible?

It could be rather interesting if the yeast isn't terrible....

The plan is to finish the ginger beer, rack it off, suck out a fair bit of the yeast and then bung in the Cider

Give it a crack and let us know how it turns out! I was tempted to do the same thing last year but chickened out at the last minute.

The final recipe is:

12L Aldi Apple Juice
2L Aldi Apple and Blackcurrant juice
200g Lactose
....and a bit of starsan from the airlock :lol:

Ive found the last 2 batches of of aldi cider that ive used the apple,blackcurrant in has turned out really apparent sweet
Its still fermented down to 1.004 but it just tasted so much sweeter
the 200g of lactose is going to make it sweet by its self as well
should still be a good drink though and look forward to your tasting notes with the GB yeast
