Homebrew - Archer's Orchard Traditional Hard Cider

This cider was made from apple juice concentrate. You add water to the juice and heat it up a bit to combine them. You never actually boil it, just get it hot enough to mix. We bought a glass carboy to experiment in so we scaled the recipe to 2.5 gallons.

Ingredients: Archer's Orchard Traditional Hard Cider, from concentrate (Saflager S-23 Dry Lager Yeast) 
Brew:        07 Apr 2011 
Bottle:      24 Apr 2011 (17)
Ready:       ???
Summary:     Primary 17 days, Condition ??? 

The cider turned out quite dry which is what we were aiming for. It was very carbonated even though we did not add any priming sugar. This suggests that there was plenty of sugar left in it when we bottled and the yeast kept on going. It tasted pretty good, I am not sure we want to get it totally flat but less carbonation would be nice.
