    How much rhubarb per gallon are you adding? In the primary or in the secondary?I haven't made a
    rhubarb cider yet. However, I would probably go with the standard 3lb per gallon (maybe rhubar...

    Okay--the concern about losing volatiles from the juice is valid, although with just mashing
    you shouldn't lose all that much (but may get "cooked apple" flavour). HOWEVER--a short boil is
    necessary t...

    How it is a wine? It isn't fermented enough to be, and wine cannot contain grains (to the best
    of my knowledge).Tart rhubarb flavour, with malty chocolate backing it up. You can't really
    taste the cin...

    I really enjoyed my dry hopped cider with Saaz. Left 1/2 oz per gallon in secondary for a good
    couple months.It was in a dry cider, only lightly jacked (6.5 ABV).

  • Posted in thread: What is your favorite yeast for soda ? on 05-22-2014 at 03:57 AM
    Hi, I'd like to know your results according to the yeast you used. I used liquid yeast
    "California WLAB V" and I have no carbonation after 7 days at 70F (21.5 C). Usually, I use the
    "Lalvin ec-1118" y...

    I have ginger, and rasp/cran ciders in secondary right now. Both should be good.As for
    chocolate--take a look in the files section. There is a recipe under the name of Drunken Emu.In
    no particular ord...

    First, I would use granny smiths rather than sweet apples, in order to get some malic acid in
    there.I'm assuming you have a plan to do a partial mash?The yeast should change the apple
    taste--real cide...

    I usually use a large snifter. It helps concentrate the aromas, and feels good in my hand.
    Dubble Graff (cider with grains).

There is one secret ingredient that makes anything better......time. Primary: House Cider; Rhubarb Wine (two batches), Carrot Wine, Malliard Botchet Secondary: Mahlab Metheglin Tertiary (or higher): Raspberry Cider Drinking: House Cider, Rhubarb Saisoff
