    Mornin'!

    Yesterday I stumbled through the pantry and found a Bulldog Mixed Berries Cider kit for 20L.

    The yeast and (probably non-fermentable) sweetener come in one sachet.

    1) What is the best yeast to replace the Bulldog?
    Available are Fermentis Safcider, Lalvin D47, QA23, 71B-1122, EC-1118 and K1-V1116.

    2) I also have some black- and blueberries in the fridge, a few 100 grams. What is the best way to add them to the most? Sanitise them, pulp them up a bit and add the mess?

    I know that it will be a dry cider when leaving out the sweetener, but so be it. Not too found of the taste of artificial sweeteners.

    Thanks in advance!

    Went with 1122. Water lock started bubbling after 1 hour.
