  • Posted in thread: Cider: back sweetening / aging on 01-02-2014 at 10:56 PM
    I'd say about 2 1/4 cups of apple juice to bottle prime 2 gallons. You could back sweeten with
    non fermentable sweeteners like sucralose, stevia, xylitol or lactose. Or you could back
    sweeten with app...

    Xylitol is definitely the best tasting artificial sweetener.

    Holy %$#@ balls batman. That's a lot of cider.This is how you force carb bottles: Or you
    could just buy a beer gun.Another option would be to let it finish fermenting, add priming
    sugar, and back sw...

    The one thing I really wish I had and still don't, kegerator. The bottling process takes more
    work than anything for me. A bottle rinser and bench capper has made it a little easier.

  • Posted in thread: Didn't seem to carb much, do I still need to pasteurize? on 12-16-2013 at 07:10 AM
    You could try to pasteurize, they might explode though. Definitely chill them right away. You
    could release some pressure. Pry the cap slowly until you hear a psss sound. It should let out
    air slow en...

    You would lose some, but not all of the co2 in solution. Chilling it helps. I've done this
    exact same thing when forgetting to make a tester a week into carbing. Not to mention he just
    bottled today. ...

    Nothing to worry about here. Looks like a healthy krausen. It should drop when fermentation
    ends. Yeast strains behave differently, last time I used white labs liquid yeast it looked
    exactly like that...

  • Posted in thread: Am I making bottle bombs?? on 12-15-2013 at 06:31 AM
    With that much sugar you are currently at 5 volumes of CO2, so bottle bombs are likely. You
    would have issues starting at 4 volumes. What I would do is uncap a bottle or two and transfer
    it to an empt...

  • Posted in thread: sweeten with Xylitol first on 12-14-2013 at 07:28 PM
    I think xylitol is the best tasting non fermentable sweetener. Unfortunately it gives me
    extremely painful stomach "issues". I've read that some people need to gradually increase
    intake to avoid these...

    There's no benefit in adding xylitol beforehand. If you add it afterwards you can sweeten it to
    taste. Use 1 tsp of yeast per gallon.
