    I can't tell any difference in taste after pasteurizing.

    Apologies for the way late reply. That may be the case, i'll keep one bottle open and see what
    the inside temp gets to. I've lost quite a few bottles to heat stress. I got a little ptsd
    though.... sin...

    I keep having an issue with over carbonated bottles. I use Pappers bottle pasteurizing method,
    but it's like the yeast isn't dying. I just opened a cider in a grolsch bottle and the neck
    literally ble...

  • Posted in thread: Cider: back sweetening / aging on 01-02-2014 at 11:56 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 08:10 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...
