Hi all, I am bottling my first Cider today and was wondering what rate most people prime there cider at? i usually bottle my beers on the lower side of what most recommend and would appreciate a general idea of what most people do. Thanks

I add 7g/L when bulk priming, flat teaspoon per longneck when doing bottles individually.

Like beer, it depends on personal preference. I prime on the lower side too.

I'd say around 5g/L for me is usual but if you treat it like beer and work out the CO2 volume you are happy with you can calculate for your tastes.
