I just started brewing last week and have seen this recipe on multiple forum signatures. I'm not a fan of sweet ciders so this will probably be right up my alley. I was thinking of carbonating 1/2 a batch and leaving the rest flat. Do you need to add something to kill off the yeast in the flat portion and, if so, what should be used?

Can't wait to give this stuff a try!

Can we still follow the 3 glasses rule if we already like it?

2 pilsner glasses in and I'm feeling good ....

Ah, well I read to page 111, and didnt see a final thought on my 2 questions...

About the smell that lasts a few days... A couple people suggested adding yeast nutrient, and others said switch the yeast to Cote Des Blancs. Do either of these suggestions get rid of the smell? I'm in a small apartment at the moment and have to do this in the closet, and if SWMBO catches a whiff of sulphur...well...no more apfelwein (!) .

Also, about how many weeks should we expect to wait for bottle carbonation at ~70F or so?

Thanks!

Use yeast nutrients or yeast energizer as directed on the bottles. It eliminates the rhino farts. I have made 5 batches so far w/o the awefull smell you talk about, however each time I've used nutrients or energizer. Also 4 out of 5 batches that I made have been with Cote Des Blancs. Its is a good fruity yeast and requires nutrients to work, without it, it tends to get stuck. I forgot it this last go around....it stalled..... Then added it and in 10-15 seconds later, I had a bubble per second for 21 days straight. Adding it was like dropping in an alka-selter. It started fizzing like crazy.

Awesome, I'm going to have to pick up some yeast nutrient this afternoon. I assume the 1 time you didn't use Cote Des Blancs you used Montrachet? If so, did the addition of nutrient or energizer get rid of the smell?

Thanks for the response!

Can't wait to try the recipe, Ed!

Made my second batch yesterday, followed the same recipe as before except I used 1 gallon of a different brand of juice (the other 4 gallons were the store brand I used before). Came home today to smell the wonderful aroma of apples and rotten eggs. Mmmmm, tasty! It's weird that the first batch, which used all store brand juice, didn't have that smell.

Time to start blaming the dogs!
