Would Apples help? in Basic Recipes Posted August 13, 2017 Working my way through the recipes/kits I have bought over the last couple months (just bottled my Angry Bovine on Friday), and am still trying to figure out what to do with the American lager that came with my initial kit. I've never been a big fan of f'in close to water beer, but I don't like the idea of just throwing it out either. It occurred to me that if I cut up some apples that perhaps I'd get closer to a cider flavor I'd actually enjoy. Been then I thought that the yeast that comes with the kit might not do well with the addition. Thoughts?
