Thanks.
Its a 5g pkt, going with the cider yeast.
At the mo its sitting at just over 4L with a crushed campden tab and tsp of pectolase in it. When I reach the 24h mark which will be around 1pm uk time I shall be adding my sugars ( inverted 1Lb Lbrown + 1Lb Honey ).
Looking for an SG of around 1080-1100 then FG of 1010 ish..
Just one thing, Should I rehydrate the yeast or just sprinkle on top and leave it, maybe a little shake..
Looking to do a slower ferment at a slightly lower temp ( 16-18c ) rather than stripping the **** out of it in about 2 days :/.
Thanks again

Ok all.
Progress update.
Transfered to another carboy. As way to much if adding invert sugar mix 1L. Sugar first then poored juice in to take it to the top.
Added Nutrient
SG 1.110 !!!!
Going to tip yeast (cider) in about 10 mins.
Fingers crossed
