Hi! My friends and I want to make cider as a fun activity. I started looking for instructions and found out about fermentation, which I know nothing about. It looks like a fun challenge, but from what I've seen it requires some equipment we don't have and there are a lot of ways it could wrong for someone who doesn't know what he's doing like me.
I was wondering if, to keep things simple, we could make non-hard cider (like in this guide, for example), then mix it with some alcoholic drink (rum? arak?). Has anyone tried this before? Can it work or will it just turn out badly?
Thanks a lot!
