  • Posted in thread: Pitching additional yeast on 03-19-2014 at 05:28 AM
    Sounds like it's progressing. I would not pitch more yeast. Nothing seems out of the ordinary
    from what I read. Maybe does sound a little slow for Notty, but actually the slower the better
    with cider....

    If you're going to open a bottle to taste and check carb, make sure you put it in the fridge at
    least a day before. Helps the CO2 get absorbed. A few hours in the fridge won't do it.

    How are you adding the cherry? Like mopar said, that's a good starting SG. Anywhere between
    1.055-1.065. And adding the "cherry" towards the end is always better. You can always add it in
    the beginnin...

  • Posted in thread: EC1118 unsuccessful cold crash on 01-15-2014 at 06:26 AM
    Agreed. That's a yeast that can't be tamed. I have tried it's cousin though (maybe?), 1116 and
    was somewhat more tame. D-47 was even better...sticking with the same brand. Won't even look at
    1118 anym...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle Conditioning: Cider vs Beer on 01-10-2014 at 07:15 AM
    Yeah that's kinda the crapshoot with what I was talking about. My sweeter batches that end up
    in bottles to carb will go to the fridge and stay there...and be drunk sooner than later. The
    dryer batche...

    And just want to add that I strictly use ale yeast. High flocculating ale yeasts. My method
    probably wont work with crazy yeasts like 1118. Although I did have success with it's tame
    cousin 1116 and a...

    I wish I had some beer batches under my belt (which is going to happen when I have more time),
    but yes I wonder the same thing about overcarbing with cider. How can it be that different? I
    am unconven...

  • Posted in thread: Too much headspace in my secondary? on 01-03-2014 at 03:55 AM
    If I were you, if it doesn't bubble once per couple minutes, just be sure and add some juice.
    Something (tame) to fill up the headspace and create a lil fermentation. Fill 'em up a bit with
    something ...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentation times on 12-31-2013 at 04:39 AM
    The longer you can keep your primary actively fermenting, the better. Trust me. It's actually
    one of my recommendations!!

  • Posted in thread: First time carbing... worried about bottle bombs on 12-22-2013 at 11:21 PM
    I strictly use the ez's and I'm pretty sure that they're good quality thick bottles. My
    personal opinion but I would think the seal at the cap would fail before a bottle explodes. I
    religiously bottle...
