Default My first take on Cider.

So I just got done bottling Edworts Apfelwein and Decided I needed to keep cider in the house all the time. I decided to try my own take on some cider. I used 1 lb of dextrose 1 lb of dark brown sugar, 24 oz of apple juice concentrate, 5 gallons of jewel brand apple cider instead of juice. I also used 2 cinnamon sticks and 2 cloves. Pitched with nottinghams ale yeast. Well see how it turns out. OG was 1.070. Any idea what this will finish at?

If ferments to dry you should come in around 9%. Nice calculator here-- http://dd26943.com/davesdreaded/tools/convert.htm

And now I have rhino farts going on in my pantry. I think it's almost worse then the apfelwein I made a month ago. Hopefully the smell will fade soon. It's at full on fermentation at this point. Almost looks like its boiling

How does a rhino fart compare to a hippo fart?

I just took a reading last night... Its still cloudy but its at 1.020. The Kräusen that had formed for the ale yeast is now almost gone. How long should I let this go before I bottle? I was hoping to get down to 1.000 but I dont know if it will ferment out that low since things seem to be slowing down.
