Default Nunderwear

yes indeed i have made an apple cider so strong that it will give you a blackout experience within one liter of drinking it. jesus. so here i am sippin away at a mason jar (roughly 28oz FULL) of a cider that i made called nunderwear, and ive got about 9oz left and im feelin a good buzz going on. i'd estimate a solid 8-8.5% abv on this one.

its named nunderwear because i was imagining, just now, what nun underwear must look like. since this brew is a golden tan color with notes of dirt suppliments and jesus teeth, i must say, this is the closest color you can get to authentic nun runners.

anyways, it was a 3 gallon batch, i used 3 gallons of mrs. gooch's organic unfiltered apple juice, 5 pounds of sugar, and one can of organic concentrate apple juice along with a packet of yeast that i cannot, for the life of me remember what it is called, and voilah, some very strong, very potent cider that tastes and smells like nun grundle.

Holy Heck! You must have made rocket fuel with 5 pounds of sugar for 3 gallons of cider. Take 2 aspirins and a liter of water before you go to bed.

haha sure thing bub.

and yeah its very very strong and unrefined. it just looks like natural apple juice, i didnt put a clarifier in it, its still, but when you cool it off, it mellows out just a little bit. it almost has a malted nose to it though...probably just all the sugar (half brown half cane)

If ive done the math correctly 5 pounds of sugar (sucrose) I assume you used table sugar in 3 gallons of water will give you about 9% alcohol by volume and that doesnt account for the sugar from the apple stuff. Of course all that will depend on the yeast if you have a lot of residual sweetness it maybe a little lower.

Ummm using my calc program I'm geting more like 13-15% from this badboy depending on how dry it went. 5 pounds in 3 gallons is HUGE. Considering 2lbs dextrose in 5 gal. of juice gives you 8.5% Apfelwein, you are definitely higher then 8% haha

Is it just me, or is this the first person to refer to Nurmey as "Bub"?

She'll love that!

He is in fact the first person to call me bub but if you can be called dude, guy, man, and a couple others, I guess I can suck it up for bub.

the 8%abv I got was based on what Ive read about sucrose for distillation. its supposed to work out as 17grams of sucrose in 1 liter of water will make 1% alcohol. I guess the calculations depend on which type of gallon you use, US gallons (3.78 liters) are smaller than imperial gallons (4.54 liters). I think I may have screwed up and used imperial gallons I assume the recipe is US gallons so 3 gallons = 11.34 liters, and 5 Lbs = 2.26 kgs, so 2260grams sucrose divided by 11.34 liters divided by 17 = 11.72% abv. I think I did it right this time.

I would have to guess that few people actually know what nun-grundle tastes like. Kudos to you, sir. I'm not sure that an anatomically authentic nun is capable of having a grundle, though. MONK-grundle, perhaps, could be a Belgian ale?
