Filtering, much apples dough...


After filtering... Ohhh the smell =]


Boiling/Pasturizing...


In my 1.5L London's Special Dry Gin bottle.



I will update as soon as fermentation is over. Well the juice is extremely SWEET so it will take more than a week :0

Sorry no gravity reader ;[

Are you going to add pectic enzyme to clear it seeing as how you boiled it?
Personally I don't bother with the pasteurisation, I think you'll also end up with a cooked apple taste. I also wouldn't bother to filter the next time, leave the must as part of it, remove it when you go to secondary.

+1 to all of this

Next time just crush up a campden tablet and wait 24hours. Then pitch your yeast and you should be good to go.

Ok so the story is like that:
The water in the airlock didnt moved and i was wondering whats wrong. Well the thing is that i made to big hole and the airlock wasnt really tight, so i poured to another bottle made good hole and immediatly the water in the airlock moved upwards (the section that near the opening).

I also enjoy the sound of a bubbling air lock in my bedroom The juice looked kind of green before it was exposed to air for a while, did you use a lot of granny smith apples?
