  • Posted in thread: Will Butyric Acid age out after bottling? on 11-14-2014 at 04:37 PM
    Thanks guys,Forgetting about them is easy. I've got a closet full of sours. Letting these ones
    sit in the back for a year isn't a problem at all.I think the issue was that I used dregs that
    might have...

  • Posted in thread: What is your go to cider or cyser yeast? on 11-10-2014 at 04:48 PM
    1118 for sure. It's happy at a wide temp. range, plus it finishes clean and quickly.

    Hi all,Just had my first run in with the notorious 'vomit' flavor in one of my sours.
    Admittedly I screwed up by bottling it a bit prematurely. It's not awful, the flavor's just a
    background note. But...

  • Posted in thread: Hard Cider backsweetening without artifical sugar? on 11-06-2014 at 04:25 PM
    My first batch is in the keg and I added sorbate and swear it gives it a funny taste. It's only
    been a few weeks so I'm hoping it will mellow in time.That's what I always ran into. I never
    did end up ...

    So no chemical additives right? You just use the keezer temp to stop further
    fermentation?That's the way I do it too. No more chemicals. I know people like to use sorbate,
    but I must be extra sensitiv...

    No good cause to strong or not strong enough?Too strong, and an odd flavor overall. A little
    harsh and vegetal.

    I've got 5 in town: 2 are close to my work, which are both awesome. 1 down the street from my
    house, which is awesome. And 2 on the far sides of town, 1 of which is awesome, the other is
    not. They all...

  • Posted in thread: Apple Juice as a back sweetener? on 10-23-2014 at 06:00 PM
    IC,thanks for the reply, as for #2, I want the the taste of apple and sweetness. If I
    backsweeten with splenda or xylitol, I will not get the apple taste I am looking for. Maybe I
    will use some frozen...

  • Posted in thread: Beer brewers have become a nervous bunch....heh on 10-22-2014 at 10:51 PM
    On one hand I agree with you. Some homebrewers definitely need to RDWHAHB. However, I didn't
    get into this hobby to make mediocre beer. I've spent far too much money and time to make
    'decent' beer. I ...
