Hello, all. I recently stumbled upon the forums and registered. This is my first post.
I've got two, one-gallon batches of cider fermenting at the moment. I was thinking about trying one today, even though it is still fermenting. It is well past its "exponential" yeast growth stage (baker's yeast) where it foamed over on me several times and the fermentation is much slower now (though still active).
I was hoping that trying it today would yield a bit of a sweeter taste like a more commercial product. Since I have no hydrometer, about what would the ABV be on a gallon of apple juice with 1 cup sugar, baker's yeast, and home-made nutrient be at this stage? Is this even a good idea at all?
Thanks in advance.
