  • Posted in thread: reusing screw top bottles on 10-24-2012 at 05:24 AM
    Guess maybe I'm just a bit out of the loop here but what exactly is the problem with using an
    actual screw top? Why not just screw the lid back on and call it a day?

  • Posted in thread: Cider tastes like olives on 10-23-2012 at 10:53 PM
    Heh I'll just mix it in with a martini. Extra virgin olive alcohol. I have no idea what my temp
    was, it was room temp so close to 70 I presume? Only fermented for 5 days then cold crash for
    2-3 days, ...

    So I made some cider about a week ago or perhaps it is an apple wine now? Regardless it tastes
    faintly of olives no apple taste whatsoever. Should this taste mellow in time? I hear this is
    due to alde...

    I agree that ace's pumpkin is amazing. Been drinking woodchuck recently and that doesn't even

  • Posted in thread: Headaches on 10-20-2012 at 01:58 AM
    I'm assuming its the tannins or something else because the alcohol content on my first wine was
    only a 6% more like a grape beer haha and I only consumed a pint glass or less. Maybe I'll
    supplement wi...

    Anyone know what gives you headaches from homemade wine. I only used commercial juice and yeast
    nothing else, no Campden or anything like that. Everytime I drink it, the next morning my head
    is killin...

    Are you pleased with the taste overall? I know you can back sweeten the entire batch but this
    can complicate bottling. Did your batch clear up thoroughly?I only tasted it while it was warm
    and its a b...

  • Posted in thread: First Batch Question(s)? on 10-17-2012 at 10:27 PM
    Looks like me and you are both newbies to this, I just started my first batch about a week ago
    used wegmans 100% apple juice. I used no Campden tabs and used champagne yeast. Mine was done
    in about 5 ...

  • Posted in thread: Cider done fermenting in 5 days. on 10-16-2012 at 08:50 PM
    I think it was a FG of 10. I have a triple scale and I pretty much only look at the abv part.
    Started at 8.5 PABV now down to 1. So it should be 7.5 abv right? Some were a bit higher some a
    bit lower ...

  • Posted in thread: Cider done fermenting in 5 days. on 10-16-2012 at 05:58 PM
    I started 4 batches 5 days ago, took readings before and after and now they're all at about
    6-7% abv so I guess they're done. Threw them all in the fridge to cold crash (3 qt containers).
    Is this a no...
