    I am a huge fan of Nottingham yeast. I have used it for about 40 brews, and I love it. It is
    generally good to about 14% ABV, and I have never gotten close to that. Your ABV should be
    about 7%, so you...

    Measure your pot carefully, and if it fits in the sink, it is a no brainer. I would like it
    better if it had a hose, but I generally love stainless. Easier to keep clean and sanitize if
    needed. I am p...

  • Posted in thread: Primary Vs. Secondary on 08-17-2015 at 08:50 PM
    There is a lot of hating on Secondary ferment here. I agree that for a simple recipe, it adds
    nothing. For clarity, I use Irish Moss to aid in clarification, and prefer Nottingham yeast
    which clarifie...

    It is generally good to get the cider (like everything else) off the yeast bed (lee or trub) if
    you are not bottling immediately. I find that with my ciders, aging in secondary gives a
    smoother flavor...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle cider in these bottles? on 08-03-2015 at 06:00 PM
    Those look like Belgian 750ml bottles. I use them quite a bit, and you can get the proper cork
    and wire cages (lust like champagne corks) from most LHBS. This gets expensive though, since it
    requires ...

  • Posted in thread: First Cyser advice on 08-03-2015 at 05:49 PM
    I have made a couple of 5 gallon batches of Cyser that have gotten great reviews. Like
    everything you brew, ingredients are everything. When I make anything based on apples (Graff,
    Cider, Cyser), I st...

  • Posted in thread: More questions from a newbie on 08-03-2015 at 05:41 PM
    If you add any significant amount of honey, you end up making a Cyser, which can be incredibly
    good, but needs to age for a year or more to be really delicious. I have made quite a bit of
    it, but it i...

  • Posted in thread: Cost of grains (not in bulk) on 08-03-2015 at 05:25 PM
    The price you are paying for grain seems very high to me. When I first started doing all-grain
    brewing, my cost dropped by about 40% per 5-gallon batch. The LHBS that I go to generally
    charges $1.50 t...
