    I didn't have any issue when I added the honey, but I took some apple juice that I shook up to
    get the rest of the honey out and it flared up after I added that. Not too bad
    though.Interesting. I supp...

    Will see how it turns out since I am using one of the yeasts not recommended.I didnt have much
    luck with WB-06. OTOH, the best yeast to use is very much dependent on the juice, so hopefully
    it will li...

    I was wondering why the OP mainly uses ale yeastsThree reasons: (1) Most Ale yeasts will go
    dormant and drop to the bottom of the carboy if you cold crash the cider. This makes it
    relatively easy to ...

    Yep, I got home today and the airlock was going nuts. Strange I stared at it for a full 3
    minutes this morning, no movement.That sound like what one of my BRY97 batches did. I dont have
    any explanatio...

    The flavor is pretty darn good. Maybe a bit dryer then I like. I crashed this at 1.008 I
    believe. My next batch I crashed around 1.010 or 1.012 if i remember correctly. So Hopefully I
    will get a bit m...

    I tried bry97 and it won't seem to start. I pitched Friday night and it's at about 68 degrees.
    I have an extra pack of Nottingham, should I wait or just pitch notty? All 3 other buckets
    started (diffe...

    I DO have 2oz of yeast nutrient I can use. Since I'm fermenting a "half batch" could I also use
    a whole pack of yeast to help ferment out, or would the ammount of yeast have no effect?You can
    use the ...

  • Posted in thread: Results from juice, yeast and sugar experiments on 02-01-2015 at 06:09 PM
    Yeah, I think my original idea was to ferment for a couple of weeks (or until dry) then cold
    crash in secondary, then bottle with priming sugar. Does this make sense? Or am I just over
    thinking the wh...

    I've bottled everything I've brewed up to this point with no problems and I figured that
    priming with just 50g or less of priming sugar would put me in a "safe zone" for bottling. Are
    you looking to m...

    Okay so I'm doing a 2.5 gallon batch from pasturized cider. The initial gravity reading was
    1.050. I'm going to use Danstar BRY-97. So should I add about a half pound of dextrose?4oz of
    sugar per gall...
