Ffarg finishes at about 1.010 without back sweetening, pasteurizing, etc.BTW, my batches of
Graff finished at 1.000 and 1.004. It was too dry and tart for me. That is why I came up with

I didn't.Well, I did, but only if you count using straight cider to sweeten a bit.

That is a little drier than mine, especially if it is 1.003. I don't have the final gravity
with me right now, though. I have pasteurized other sweet ciders before, so it can be done, but

What do you think about about my gravity readings scottsaxman?I'm concerned that it won't be
sweet enough at 1.003 & 1.006.I'm still wondering if I should rack today and bottle next

I also use a home juicer. After juicing, I pass everything through a straining bag like this
one before adding to the carboy.Well, lesson learned.I'm not worried about it though, I'm
wanting my finish...

Woke up this morning to about 1/4 inch of sediment.It seems the yeasties are keeping things
stirred up in there.I'll not bother with racking it since it's only running its course for
around 4 weeks...
