Not sure bread yeast will take it to 14% though? I think it'd be a syrupy mess.

I searched this thread for 'filtered vs unfiltered' and saw issues with clarity mentioned(unfiltered being cloudy when complete)

Are they any other differences?

Cloudy unfiltered organic costs me 7.99 per glass gallon jug vs buy 1 get 1 free half gallons of filtered for 1.98/gallon.

I did my first batch with 7.99 stuff and bottled after about 3 weeks. My finishing gravity was 998 or so with Montrachet yeast.

It tasted very much like apples, and the small sample glass I drank made my face warm up.

I know some people say they don't have apple taste left once it's done. I had a very apple-e, somewhat tart flavor.

If the juice is filtered, would I expect less apple taste since the cloudyness is basically suspended apple particles?

I have 2 gallons of fancy stuff and 2 gallons of clear stuff that I was going to mix together for a 4 gallon batch, and now I'm thinking of scrapping that for another cloudy batch, and then maybe a little 2 gallon batch of the clear stuff to note the differences.

I used treetop AJ and lalvin 71B, in both still and carbed version there is quite a bit of apple flavors.

Bottled my first batch today, it's gonna be tough to let this age as the test sample was pretty tasty. Pitched a batch of hard lemonade onto the 1118 cake.

Hey does anyone have the yeast information for Red Star Montrachet. I'm trying to add it into BTP for a batch of Ed Wort's Apfelwein and even after searching for a while I can't seem to find the info.

thanks,
It stands for "Beer Tools Pro". That's my brewing software package. The only dumb question is the one left unasked.

Still looking for attenuation and flocculation info for input in BTP...
