    I've brewed cider two batches of cider. One batch was unsuccessfull because I was going for a spiced cider and I used too much of cloves which became overpowering once it fermented. The second batch I was very conservative with the spicing and it was great.

    You can just use store-bought applejuice, pour directetly into your fermenter, add yeast and go. Best to use a yeast that's more suited for cider than you would for beer: talk to your brewing supplier about this.

    I was thinking of using champaign yeast, also can someone talk me out of spiceing with just a hint of salvia.

    Go ahead and try it.

    As for yeast, here's a good place to start:

    So I had my first major problem with my home brew. Last batch I brewed I really procrastinated on bottling for about 6 weeks, letting the brew sit in the secondary for too long. The result: no carbonation from bottling. I think the yeast died from sitting too long. I had a package of powdered yeast that had been sitting in my fridge for a while. I warmed it up and got a starter culture growing. I used a dropper to add yeast slurry to all the bottles and re-capped them. I then used the remaining yeast to make a gallon of half-strength mead (about 6 to 6.3%). I've heard that it's good practice to add extra nutrients to mead as the honey doesn't give the yeast a lot to work with, but we'll see. I'll report back in a week or two as to how my carbonation quick-fix worked.

    it's suppose to be milder if taken orally. I had an Idea once that if I ever start a brew house i would initially offer a salvia beer as a marketing stunt alongside two normal beers.

    The saving grace of Salvia is that it is over quick. Ingested orally, it can last a long, long time.

    Salvia and beer is, imo, a terrible idea... unless you plan on having someone else drink it.

    I'll just leave a case outside of a local highschool and see what happens.
