I started Jack Keller's highbush cranberry about a month ago and had SG 1.122. Tried 71b on it,
4 days later it still couldn't get started with that much sugar. Added EC-1118 and it was going

I don't think you would want to chop up the seeds, so to be safe I would probably core them
quickly. I quartered them and cut out the core to get them to fit in the processor, and remove
any wormy bit...

I have something similar for apple sauce, but it's really just meant for cooked fruit. Forcing

I used EC-1118 in mine. Definitely overkill, but I can't believe how fast it starts. It was

I started a 2-gallon batch in a 3-gallon carboy, so there's lots of headspace. It's been
fermenting furiously, but I'm going to put it in gallon jugs in a couple days once it settles
down. There's a t...

Would it be a mistake to start this in a glass carboy with an airlock? Stirring wouldn't be an
option, but it's fruit fly season right now and I'm not sure I could keep them out if I just
cover a pot ...

I just moved 5 gallons of this down to my basement to relax awhile. After a week and a half, it
