Default New batch started today apple pineapple

6-gallon glass jug
4-gallons pure apple juice IGA 100% juice
1-quart pineapple juice dole 100% juice
7# sugar from cane
water to top of jug
one air lock
yeast will be distillers DADDY brand clean finish yeast
room temp 65-69 deg.
last week i made a small version in a one gallon jug and after 7 days it was
real good so i made a bigger batch to bottle up and cure out.

i added the juice to the jug
then boiled and cooled to 160 deg then mixed water with sugar and let stand to cool a little
yeast booster food and fuel was added
then add the sugar water shook to add air and pitch yeast.
all tools and jugs were cleaned with ez clean
i hope the larger batch turns out like the 1 gallon jug tasted real sweet and clean for just a week plus it had a heck of a kick from just two glasses so i was told.

Don't use distiller's yeast! That's your problem.

Oh, and your other problem is you're going to have bottle bombs!

Sounds like the problem is your yeast. distillers DADDY brand yeast ferments up to 22%! Thats no longer cider. Not even sure if its still wine...

well, if the sugars arent present you cant get that high, but thats another point.

Distillers yeast will throw out all kinds of higher alcohols that will give headaches.

Drinking anything fermented with distillers yeast is a really bad idea. Some of those fusel alcohols can kill you.

+1 on the bottle bombs comment. people really need to be careful with that. I've been repeating the same thing all over the forums so that noobies don't make the mistake.

Easy: Dry carb'd cider, Dry Still cider, Still sweet cider

Hard: Sweet Carb'd cider
(unless you have a kegging setup)

I find that my cider is less likely to give me a headache than wine or beer.

it was the yeast, thank you for the help. last batch came out ok but just not the same kick
it tested out @ 12% in stead of 23% but no head ache. i never new apples could pack this kinda punch.
