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

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

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
