I don't know about anybody else, but I've noticed that when I've had
batches that have been cidery in flavor that I've used Red Star ale
yeast. I sometimes got the flavor even in brews with two cans of
extract w/ 1/2 cup or so corn sugar for bottling. I've since stopped
using Red Star, but since it is winter and I tend to brew darker
stuff, I haven't been able to compare.

Any comments?
