Sweetening my Cider

As I said in my autosiphon post, the hard cider I brewed turned out really dry.

So yesterday, while I already had sanitizer in a bucket, I dropped in some potassium sorbate and two cans of 100% natural apple juice concentrate. Gave it a little bit of swirling to get everything mixed in well. Hopefully that takes away a bit of the dryness.

I had thought about letting it ferment just a little, but didn't want to mess with rereading gravity and trying to pull a sample from the carboy, so I guess it will just be a mystery until I bottle.
