I started a batch of strawberry apple cider nearly 3 weeks ago.sadly I don't yet have a hydrometer. Essentially the recipe was 4 cups strawberry juice/purée, 1.5 cups brown sugar, pectin enzyme, fresh pressed cider to make a gallon and a packet ec1118.
It fermented completely dry in less than a week, left it for two days with no airlock activity. I intended to carbonate, so I sweetened to taste, bottled and waited. It's now been 10 days and I still don't have a significant amount of pressure in my coke bottle.
I don't think it could have reached its max alcohol tolerance in such a short time?
Why is it not carbing up?
