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.
