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...

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...

Any chance your computer has that radar thingy? Or they could track it down somehow?

Well, probably not. Well, maybe for some other reason, but probably not cause of my idea for an
invention. But I wanna put it out there anyway.Right, my invention. Please tell me if this is

I've put a half teaspoon straight into the bottles before bottling and it seemed to work just
fine. Patience is a virtue, especially when dealing with homemade libations.I know patience is
a big thing...

Huh... so I've been opening about one a day, or every other day, and they're still not really
carbonated at all. 200g of brown sugar for a gallon should do it, right? I'm afraid it wasn't
enough and t...

Will I be able to notice at all from the outside of the bottle?I honestly didn't make that
many, I have maybe 15 total, so each time I open one it sets me back a little. I'll make more
next time :D

Also, my guess is that there's a surprising amount of gas in small amounts of dry ice, so it
would be hard to accurately measure the right amount of dry ice so that your bottles don't

Hmmm, it's day 3 today so I opened one today. It made a little noise, but not at all what a
carbonated bottle should sound like, and it didn't taste at all carbonated...hmm...

Well, I did it. We'll see how horribly this goes. I did roughly 50g of brown sugar for each
liter, because that got it at about the sweetness I wanted. I'm going to check a bottle for
carbonation at d...
