    We ended up with 134 entries for this competition with quite a few coming in from out of state.
    The entries are all sorted and waiting for judging next weekend. It will be exiting to see and
    taste all...

    Thanx for the input Yoop. The sulfites are also a good possibility that I hadn't thought of.
    Obviously CvilleKevin has had pretty good luck with beer yeasts so I know it is doable. There
    is just not a...

    Thanx gregbathurst. I have done a few ciders with English Cider yeast and I agree a PH of 3.3
    worked nicely. I was curious why the Wyeast 1098 did not seem to work at that PH though, and
    the Nottingha...

    Well it appears no-one has a firm answer on this one. As it ws getting to be way too many days
    without ferment I made up a re-hydrated batch of Lalvin D47 a couple days ago and pitched that.
    I had fer...

    I have a question. My wife and I have been doing some playing around with cider for the last
    several months and have had some decent results using English Cider yeast. After reading much
    of CvilleKevi...

    The WA Mead and Cider cup is going to be a fantastic competition. It recognizes the growth in
    home made mead and cider making in recent years and gives a place to compete these beverages
    clear of the ...

    Line length balancing is nowhere near as critical with cider. The reason being is cider will
    not foam up the way beer will if the lines are too short. I have run cider at 16-18 psi through
    an 8' line ...

    The cider should be cold to take the CO2. Then put your 10-12 psi on and wait. In about a week
    you should start noticing decent carbonation Might be 10-12 days until you hit the peak
    carbonation for t...

    Tannin extraction is not instantaneous. Only if you keep the temp over 170 will you be risking
    noticeable tannin extraction. After initial vorleuf then drain, your grains will be somewhere
    in the 150-...
