Anyone done a cider with a lager yeast
Was thinking of Wyeast 2308 Yeast cake from Munich Dunkel 1.048 OG
just brought 21Lt apple juice today
Was adding some honey and malt extract
never made a Cider before
Because it is Lager temp in garage at the moment thought it would be a good idea??

Are you rinsing the yeast, or pitching on the whole yeast cake?

Should be ok then. Probably not the #1 choice for a cider, though shouldnt be too bad either. Be sure to give it a good D rest though.

Yes only because i've got it
Might rethink it though
Didnt think of the D rest although i do it with my lagers
This one might be done inside with an Ale yeast
might be a better option i think

Thanks mate
Doesn't take much to persuade some one

What are the differences in taste when you use a lager yeast compared to a cider yeast (champagne yeast??)? Or an ale yeast for that matter?

Making an apple cider soon, and this is a pretty interesting topic I think.
