Default Turbo Cider

Well this is as easy as it gets!
(called turbo as its so quick and easy)

Ingredients:
4.5L of pure apple juice
1tsp yeast

Method:
1. Place 3L of apple juice into a demijon (assumeing everything is sterile)
2. PLace 1tsp of yeast into the demijon
3. shake
4. leave for 36-48hrs to ferment then top with with the remaining of the juice (cant fill it right up at the start as it will foam quite a bit)
5. leave to ferment out
6. Rack off and drink (or if you like cider fizzy then prime as usual)

i thought i would try this out and i was very impressed with the results.

it is sssooooo easy

i used tesco value apple juice and SG was 1.042 so no sugar was necessary (to get to 5.5%ish) but if you want cider stronger add sugar/honey or whatever.

very good for a beginer and an expert alike!

good for trying out different yeasts also since the recipe is so simple and the ingredients vary so little.

Default Turbo Pineapple

Just wondering if you have tried the same as you did with the Cider but using pure pineapple instead.
Im more in to the Turbo stuff than Wines/beer So my next Demijon is for Turbo Pineapple.

Cheers

This might be a total noob question, but what is a Demijon?

what kind of yeast did you use for this turbo yeast I'm interested in starting a batch or two myself.Would Mott's Apple juice work in the for the pure apple juice the store I work at sells them in huge 1 gallon jugs which I'm thinking would also work out as a good fermentation vessel of course with the top vented.?

That would work fine. You wouldnt even need much headspace (so no need to drink a glass of the juice first ) because it won't form much foam if you don't shake it.

Bakers yeast, any beer yeast and wine yeast will all work. Considering the low sugar content all will ferment the juice to dryness. Baker's yeast and beer yeast will be fastest.

Default Turbo pineapple

Im 5 days in to my trial of Turbo Pineapple, I used 100% pure pineapple juice from Tescos. After two days i had to decant in to another Demijon due to the Yeast lifting all the bits of pineapple to the top forming quite a thick layer. On day three it was fermenting niceley but settled so i topped up the bottle with a litre of white grape juice so as to not create more pineapple crust. Going well. Dont smell that appealing though at this stage.

You say the SG was 1.042 which would give you about 5.5% how would you get this up to say 6.5% i mean how do you know how much more sugar to add.
I ask because i have just started a brew 2 hours ago and my SG was 1.046 and as i have two on the go i thought i might bump it up to 6.5%.
I have used 4 ltrs of apple juice and wine yeast.
So far i have 1 bubble per minute so is it ok to add sugar now or is it to late.

Thanks

noob question, what difference will it make in terms of taste ?
baker's yeast produces alcohol as well?
