    Hi All,I've been brewing a bunch of 1-gallon batches of cider in clear glass jugs, as well as a
    couple other batches of wine and mead on the side, and I've become quite confused about how the
    final cl...

  • Posted in thread: Reasons not to use a Better Bottle? on 02-28-2013 at 10:58 PM
    Hi All,So I really like the idea of fermenting exclusively in glass carboys, but the pragmatism
    of the Better Bottles is winning me over. So I want your guys' input-- aside from the overall
    nicer aest...

    Great. That's a relief to hear. Thanks very much!

  • Posted in thread: Carbonating cider on 01-28-2013 at 05:08 PM
    I have heard 1/8 cup to 1/4 cup per gallon (depending on how carbonated you want), but that is
    not backed up by my personal experience. I will backsweeten my first non-still batch of cider
    in about 3 ...

    Hi all,One of my batches of cider looks a little bit different than I've come to expect-- the
    foam on top is thicker and a little bit darker in color than other batches I have made, as well
    as the oth...

    So if you guys would like to know, I just bottled that cider I was talking about. Here's the
    post-report:My brew of a gallon of cider, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and 1 oz. of Nottingham Ale
    Yeast sat in ...

    Well, I just racked my cider to secondary after two and a half weeks. It was still bubbling
    pretty regularly too, but the lees were really building up. S.G. was down to 1.020 from 1.060.
    It's still bu...

    I think that we are told by generic wisdom that letting a cider sit to long in primary risks
    imbuing cider with the taste of dead yeast. That being said, I have recently heard of several
    recipes that ...

  • Posted in thread: How long can primary last? on 12-11-2012 at 05:17 PM
    Hey all,I have a batch of cider bubbling away in a one-gallon jug, and I have heard some
    varying opinions about how long to let it ferment in primary before racking it to secondary. I
    don't want it to...
