Kal - I would not be surprised if you have long ferment or a 2nd ferment. I think I read somewhere that you can get a malolactic ferment. I think thats because of the fruit w/ skins.

If anybody knows about this chime in...

The krausen looks awesome!!

So if I want to carbonate about half of the bottles, I can just sprinkle corn sugar into the bottles I want to carbonate, yes? I think I heard something about 1/2 teaspoon per bottles, does that sound about right?

If you have a scale that measures grams, it is about 3 grams of corn sugar per bottle if you figure 5 ounces of corn sugar for a 5 gallon batch. I don't know off hand how much a teaspoon weighs, but I would guess that a 1/2 tsp would not be enough.

Wouldn't it be easier to say 3/4 cup for 5 gallons and figure it from there? Yeah i know 5 oz of corn sugar isn't exactly 3/4 cup but this isn't rocket science either... you could also take 5 oz and divide it by 50 (bottles) and get .1 in each... of course weighing it would be much easier...

So I guess I had a blowoff. At least I think thats what it is. The foam from the top of the juice has gotten into the airlock and over the stopper. Here's some pictures:
Now what do I do?

Either rig a blowoff tube or let it go till it calms down and clean the airlock...

Mine did the same! I let it go. It still has juice in the lock. I'm not going to worry about it at all. When its done it'll get cleaned. There's nothing to plug it right? Its not like you have a hop pellet that will get jammed inside.

Mine will get a thorough soaking in BTF Line Cleaner after I finish bottling and drinking a few.

I guess I'll just let it go for now then, maybe after the bubbling slows down I'll clean it out. Thanks for the help.

There's a fine line in how much juice you can put in the carboy and not have that happen. My last did that as I put all but 2 oz. of 5 gallons of juice. I just swapped out the airlock with a freshly sanitized one a couple of times. It subsided after a day or so.

I am going to brew this up this weekend. I am new to brewing and have my first beer in the secondary right now, bottling it tommorow. I would like to make a 5 gallon batch. When it's ready to bottle, no keg yet, I would like to make half original and half sweet and carbonated. How is the best way to to do this? Also is it OK to use a 6.5 carboy for 5 gallons, I have brew going to the 5 gallon this weekend. If not what would be the recipe for 6.5 gallons. Thanks for the help.

Keith
