This one seems pretty obvious...but figured i'd ask before i get into it. I've made a 5 gallon batch of the original recipe apfelwein, and it's not for me. It lacks an apple flavor, and tastes more like a dry wine than a hard apple cider (not that it's bad..just not what I was looking forward to)
So...rather than do another 5 gallon batch and decide i again don't like it, i'd like to do several 1 gallon batches. I'll be buying several 1 gallon carboys to do 1 gallon batches. I would like to try two different kinds of apple juice, and a few different types of yeast, as well as adding cans of concentrate.
I was going to add 3 cans of concentrate to a 5 gallon batch, but that makes the math tricky (not literally, but dividing up a can into 2/3 'precisely' could get tricky...and messy... Would I be safe planning on 1 can per gallon (just to simplify the test batches)
Is there anything else that needs to be taken into consideration when 'scaling up' a batch?
Can i split a wyeast packet for two 1 gallon batches?
