    That also ran through my mind initially. I had some very sweet unfiltered cider recently and it
    ran 1.055. I could see a good year getting into 1.06, but that's virtually as sweet as it
    comes.Have to ...

    If you finished at 1.01, its likely that fermenting was not through. Priming, you may get
    bottle bombs. I usually let it ferment at least 3 weeks, test gravity over week period our so
    to make sure no ...

    I'm a big advocate for aging the cider. This cider isn't even 2 weeks old, it should get better
    with age.I'm glad to hear you didn't add sugar to raise OG. I've personally never worked with
    xylitol, s...

    Oh, and another question: might the temperature it's at have a huge effect? We have the heating
    set in my house so it mostly just keeps it warm during the day, so it probably fluctuates by
    ~15 degrees...

    So I've definitely gotten a huuuuuge improvement since the first batch, thanks to advice from
    people here telling me to switch from the yeast I was using (Lalvin EC-1118 wine yeast) to a
    Lallemand Not...

  • Posted in thread: Back on the cider horse -- what did I mess up in this batch? on 12-29-2013 at 03:50 AM
    Damn. Well, as I mentioned before, I already ditched them because I was pretty sure at the time
    they were nasty and infected, and I wanted to start the next batch... but now I kinda wish I
    had kept on...

    Pickled_Pepper, thank you for the response. To be more specific, it smelled and tasted a little
    vinegar-y. Not just like cheap wine, legitimately bad. I've already poured it out, and I could
    be wrong,...

    Hi everyone! After a hiatus of 2 years or so, I have the cider hankerin' again. I figured I'd
    do a simple, small batch to get back into it. I did pretty much what I did last time (that had
    decent resu...

    Do keep in mind that sulfites don't kill yeast, as was mentioned. You'd still get bottle
    bombs.Ok, I must have misunderstood something huge in reading through the cider forum. Then
    what is the chemica...

  • Posted in thread: I'm gonna be RICH! on 02-11-2012 at 06:15 PM
    I'm just spitballing here and don't know if it would be practical but why not make the release
    of metabisulfate dependent on pressure? In other words, your yeast will ferment some of the
    sugar to buil...
