Default NZ Blackrock Cider

I've got a Blackrock cider brewing at the moment but have thrown out the tin that tells me how much sugar goes in the bottling process.

I know to bottle when the hydrometer reading is at 1006, does anyone here know how much sugar to use?

Welcome Deem, good choice going with the kiwi product there
As for timing of bottling don't rely on the 1.006, take 2 readings a couple of days apart and if they are the same then it's ready to bottle.
For the priming sugar i was told at the start that about 6g per bottle would get you a medium level of fizz, something like a commercial beer. But from this forum I learnt that it is easier to bulk prime the entire batch then its just bottle and cap, no messing around with a teaspoon in each bottle!
Either search on here or do a google search for bulk priming calculator and have a read, if I get a chance I'll try find a link to a good one later

Thanks for the reply mattd2. I had never thought of bulk priming, sounds less messy so will do a search later on it. This is my second attempt at cider, the first was ok, but not brilliant.
So I did some research and decided to go with the all natural Blackrock. Will try their beer next time, I've found a local supplier here in Sydney. Was about to call him and get him to read the label for me!
Thanks again and yes, if you get time I'd like a link to a bulk priming website,
Dee
