So, Ive made plenty of Ed-worts apple cider before, but last month my housemate got given a "kit" for his birthday,, which included adding a massive 5kg of suger. so he decided to make it up.
It fermented pretty steady for 2 weeks at around 18-22C degrees, finally stopped bubbling away yesterday, so we racked it off to a secondary, were gonna prime some bottles up but during the racking we tasted it...
....it was like apple snaps.
So I took a reading of it with my Alcohol tester, 20% !!
Ive no idea what strange turbo yeast they included with this pack, and how it managed to ferment so much away before dieing off (I presume), but what we want now is the best way to bring this back.
My initial idea was to throw in 3-5 leters of apple juice, a pinch of champagne yeast let it sit 48 hours, then bottle with the normal amount of priming suger.
Any better ideas?
