Produção de cidra de maçã

Preliminary experiments are described on cider preparation, using the red skin Ohio Beauty apple variety cultivated at Valinhos, State of São Paulo. Starting with apple juice with a pH of 2.70, several cider types were obtained with an average pH of 3.60. Juice sterilization at temperatures of 65-67°C and subsequent lowering of temperature to 30-35°C before fermentation gave the best results. Temperature of 10-16°C as well as temperatures of 23-28°C during fermentation were used with success. Yeast strains selected for grape juice fermentation gave good results for fermentation of the apple juice here studied.
