On cider brands and hops

Just a few updates for you.

1) Never, ever, never, ever use Aldi’s cider as your cider for home cider.  I’m not sure if there was some yeast stabilizer in the ingredients I missed or not but it only fermented about half-way. The sugars I added fermented but the natural sugars in the cider remained so that it is too sweet for my taste. Now I have 7 gallons of hard cider I don’t like. What to do?

2) In line with the above, the Hallertau hops I used in my dry-hopped cider MAY have worked well, if it wasn’t so sweet.
