I’m looking for feedback on an idea I have. Perhaps someone has even tried this already.
My wife and I have a couple of favorite recipes that call for making a syrup or glaze out of apple cider by reducing it in a pan on the stove. The result is delicious. What would happen if I made a hard cider that started out as 5 gallons of fresh cider, plus another gallon that had been reduced down to a syrup?
I expect the alcohol content would be higher due to a higher OG. I hope the apple flavor might be a touch stronger. I’m guessing it might add a bit of a caramel flavor.
