So you ferment for 2 weeks, then bottle condition for a few more? I'm making this for SWMBO, who doesn't like beer, but then again the uncorrected OG was something crazy like 1.080 so a few sips will probably knock her on her ass (she's pretty much the biggest lightweight there is). I'm not planning on putting it in secondary at all (partly because it's fermenting in what I use for a secondary ), and would like this to be quick and easy to see if she likes it.

I've never re-used yeast before, so if I'm re-using the cake do I need to do anything besides dump the new unfermented stuff on top?

Also, for what it's worth I used brown sugar and ale yeast instead of your ingredients.

The ale yeast should do ok in the recipe, it will likely not ferment out all the sugar in the recipe and leave it a little sweet tasting. The brown sugar will give it the added fermentable sugar and a molasses taste. I would say at least 2-3 weeks in primary and then three weeks in bottles, then chill for a week or so if you are not planning on a secondary for it. If you are going to just dump this on a used yeast cake you might get some off flavors from the hops if it is from a beer fermentation, but you will get a good active ferment for sure.

Ok, thanks. What I meant was dumping more apple juice onto the cake from the cider, so there won't be any hops in there. SWMBO likes it sweet, so that should turn out great

I would use 3/4 a cup of dextrose sugar to prime if you wanted it sparkling.

I want to use this recipe and would like to know if I can get away with using White Labs American Ale Blend WL060? The reason is I have just put it in a primary today with a basic wheat that I'm making a blueberry for my wife. Will this work and what can I expect as for taste?

Is there an update on how this is going? Bottled w/ carbonation? Flat? Does it live up to it's name?

I transferred mine to the secondary and tasted it. Pretty good stuff it's starting to clear nicely. I'm going to dump another batch on the yeast cake.
