i boiled 2 pints of water, cooled it to 80 degrees, and then mixed in the yeast to hydrate it. then, i poured it into the mixture to ferment!

I just poured mine in like stated in the original recipe. Fermentation started in less than 24 hours.

Check the Welch's grape wine thread.

Well Ed, you can add another 10 gallons to the tally as I just finished my batches started in early March. One was done with Cotes Des Blanc to test side by side. Really not sure which I like better as they are both great! So good I'm starting my next 5 in the next day or two and will keep this consistantly fermenting/aging.

Thanks Ed!

Default Sorry..

...but I had to stop reading after the first 27 pages. But I have a couple questions and I'm sorry if they have already been anwsered or asked.

1.) What can I do so that this is on the sweet side? I have purchased 1lb of Lactose and will mix it in when I bottle if that will help.

2.) Also do you think that if I add 2 cans of apple juice concentrate with the 6gallons of apple juice that would help?

3.) I have a 6.5 gallon carboy, will I be fine using 2lbs of corn sugar and the single packet of yeast if I use 6 gallons of Apple Juice?

Thanks in advance, and I'm sorry if these questions have been asked or anwsered.

1. Add the same # of cans of concentrate as juice. Sweeter still, don't add sugar and let it be just hard apple cider. The ABV goes down, obviously.

2. Refer to answer 1.

3. I am going to try this: 4 gallons juice, 4 cans concentratem 1 lb. corn sugar, Cotes De Blanc yeast. Should be a little sweeter and still pack a punch. Yes, 1 pack is enough. 6 galloons of juice is going to be too much in a 6.5 carboy and you are going to lose some through the blow-off tube you are going to have to use.

well I am about 11 days in with my first batch everything looks ok......but.......by watching the fermentation taking place I noticed that in my 5 gallon carboy that it is only fermenting on 1 side of the carboy, I can see on the right side C02 bubbles loading up creating the white foam but on the left side there are bubbles but they are few and far between, I realize this probably means nothing just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, oh and I am getting a big build-up of yeast cake on the bottom I am using L-1118.

I'd bet money that your carboy isnt exactly level. The bubbles go straight up, so if the carboy is tilted even slighty, they would come up on one side.
