  • Posted in thread: Carbon Filtering on 01-09-2013 at 06:28 AM
    So, I have heard stories of people using carbon filters to make bad spirits taste better, and
    they tried it on myth busters and it worked for them. So I was wondering if it would have an
    effect on cid...

    Just started up a batch of this, followed it to a T, but couldnt find any nutmeg and I added 3
    cups of white sugar instead of 1lbs, ended up with an SG of 1.080, should be fun when it is
    finished :D, ...

    Just bottled a batch of this, followed the recipe but I added no tannin, malic acid or yeast
    nutrient. I also added a little cinnamon(I love cinnamony ciders for some reason). Turned out
    great at ~11%...

    Hey guys (off topic), I searched this thread a bit and didn't find too many people having
    problems with very (I mean VERY) fast carbonation. I don't know how in the world you can let

    few from my caramel batch that gushed at room temp and were fine when chilled and had no
    problems when pas...

    Thanks for the reply!I came across an equation that said (og - fg ) * 131 equals abv.So... (
    1.120 - 1. 030 ) * 131 equals about 12 % abv So using the yeast with a 12 % alc tolerance, I
    was hoping it ...

    I threw the caramel sauce in after I made it and it got to room temp. Didnt really see the
    point in letting it sit, and didnt want to risk contamination. My guess would be a zip lock or
    a tupperware c...

    I used bakers yeast for my 1st batch, because I didnt have any real yeast. It still came out
    pretty decent. Only really clear differences I noticed between bread yeast and nottingham was,

    secondary(if you wan...
