Default OOps, rebotteling

Well, what i bottles, seems to have a layer of nasty stuff at the bottom, which always mixes in if you try to pour it out..

So as carefully as possible, and amazingly not getting much of the icky in it, i poured the bottles back into the carboy, and washed them out.

Let it sit over night and its still nice and clear and there aint much sediment.

When i bottle, can i drop a grape in each bottle to give it some carbonation?
jus an idea

I have never heard of grapes helping with carbonation. Usually you just prime it the same way you would prime beer.

BTW, the "icky stuff" in the bottom of the bottles is called trub (pronounced "troob") You can eliminate it in the next batch by racking your cider to a secondary fermenter and letting it finish before bottling. Or, since the trub is only spent brewer's yeast, and brewer's yeast helps prevent hangovers, a little won't hurt...(G)

It gives it an off taist though, thats why i took it out.

It helps hangovers?
