I'm doing my first 5 gallon batch of cider. I transfered to my secondary carboy last night. Original reading before going into the primary was 1.060 and reading after putting it into the secondary was 1.008. Fermentation seems to be actually going faster now that when it was in the primary.
I'm looking to get a fizzy cider once bottled and aged.
I'm using a belgian strong ale yeast that is supposed to ferment up to 12-13 percent ABV. What should the hydrometer reading be at when bottling? Ive heard 1.005 to 1.000. OR how many bubbles per minute? Or is there a better way to figure this out?
ANY HELP OR ADVICE IS APPRECIATED!
