Combine all ingredients except yeast. Boil for about 30 minutes, skim the top if you feel like it. After boiling take this off the stove, and add about 2 to 2-1/2 gallons of chilled fresh Cider. This should drop the temperature to below 90 degrees, if not chill it to below 90 degrees, then add an Ale Yeast, 7-14 grams of Whitbread or some other quality Ale Yeast as good. I let this ferment in the primary for 3-5 days, then rack to a secondary and let sit another 10-14 days before kegging. I artifically carbonated this one, but amounts of priming sugar typical for Ales would work well too.
