I tasted it last night when I took my sg reading and it was pretty sweet. I'll check it again tonite when I get home. I might let it go to 1.01 or so.

Used Treetop Apple juice (as I'm 100s of miles away from an orchard). Everything else I did to a tee. Used Nottingham yeast, brown sugar and cinnamon sticks. I sanitized with Starsan, and there was a little bit of foam left, but I've always been told not to 'fear the foam'.

I can't wait to try this on Wednesday/Thursday

Just taste tested it and it's super sweet. So while I wait for more fermentation I made labels.

If only. Just did a google image search for "Wilford Brimley Cartoon" and I got this.



I digress. Don't want to get too off topic. Sorry guys.

I stubbed my toe last night and took it out on the dog...I hit my wife last week. I come to find out my wife's been dead for years....who the hell did I hit?


Nice label!

I've waited three days and there's still foam on top as fermentation is still going pretty strong. will cold crashing it stop it, then is it okay to bottle, carb then pasteurize?
