Alright I am gonna make some of this stuff tonight, I am planning on leaving it in the primary for 2 months, then letting it bottle condition for 6 weeks. Just in time for Christmas.
Does this sound like enough time for aging?

Sorry if this is a repeat question but I really don't want to read through the tons of posts on this subject.

Made a batch on January 3rd. Got it in the keg 2 weeks ago. Can't keep my damn hands off the AW! I will now be making a bi-monthly batch of AW so I can keep it available all the time. Great little summer quencher with appropriate moderation. Is awesome mulled with whatever you like for a winter warmer. Yep, it pays to make it regularly.

First batch has been brewing 3 weeks ... I know, I know, I'm a week late starting the second batch (on a two week cycle between first and second batch.)

I've never been to Africa ... and am wondering .... how the hell do all you guys know what Rhino farts smell like?

And ... how close to a rhino does one have to get to really smell the farts?

Yeah you should be good on that time frame. hell, I bottled a a batch last week that had been fermenting for four weeks. Had a few last night and they were damn tasty. Just can't keep my hands off the stuff!

So my Costco has Kirkland brand "Fresh Pressed" apple juice. No other ingredients, not from concentrate. It's about $1 more expensive per 2gal than the Motts (which has the ascorbic acid). I think I'm going to go with the Kirkland... Hope it turns out ok! it's in cloudy jugs so I couldn't tell if the juice is cloudy or not. I'm assuming it probably is,....

Pectic enzyme will clear it up, add 1/2 tsp per gallon prior to pitching the yeast.

Just bottled my first batch, carbing some, going to back sweeten some.

The "sample" was awesome.

Thanks ed.

Hi All,

I have a batch of the cider that's been going for a month roughly. It's cleared quite well. I know I should leave it for a quite a while longer. My deal is, I want mine to be carbed. I dont care for flat cider. Thing is, I only made a 1 gallon batch just to test out if I was going to like it. So I have it in a 1 gallon jug. I keg my beer, and have never bottled. Exactly what should I do to get this gallon carbed? Should I move it to bottles? I have some of the sugar bottlers use that came in a few austin kits I have ordered. If so, what kind of bottles?

EDIT: I just had a small sample of my batch. Whoa. I think I just got a buzz from that tablespoon. At any rate. The overall flavor is great, but for my taste I would like it WAY sweeter. What can I do about that at this point?
