    Have you run across the iodine test for ripeness yet? Havent used this test yet but we are
    planning on it to judge better when our wild apples are ripe to confirm our taste tests. You
    need to get an a...

    After doing more research I have discovered a few things. First I was able to find some
    scholarly research that speaks to the acidity of my Goodlands apples. Apparently they should
    range from 0.55% to...

    Now here's another question...this last batch of apples I had pressed weren't as ripe as I
    would have liked. What effect will this have on the cider? I know that the Goodland apple is a
    little more ta...

    I am in zone 6 so cant give you local knowledge, but there is St Lawrance nursery that lists
    cold hardy apples including some for cider. We have a couple NW Greenings, we like tart apples
    and this is ...

    If it's too tart, forget about it a year and then you might have a really nice dry cider.I've
    used the Lalvin EC1118 yeast a few times - and it always ferments out super dry. It takes a
    long time to a...

    I just bottled my last batch of cider. The cider from Goodlands apples has turned out super
    tart. So mush so that I might not drink it all. There is another variety that remains a mystery
    to me that I...

    Sulfite in the correct amounts does not affect wine yeast. Winemakers use sulfites routinely.
    It's primarily used as an antioxidant.I added one campden tablet per gallon. Seems to be the
    standard amou...

    Thanks! I'll just have to wait and see what the final results are. At less than a day in I was
    seeing bits of sediment settle out on the bottom (the cider was crystal clear when bottled) so
    this would...

    If you were at a specific gravity around 1.000 and didn't prime the cider for carbonation, it
    will be flat. There aren't any sugars left for the yeast to produce the CO2 needed.Did you add
    juice or pr...

    I did a quick search for jugs from Britain. What you want is this...but available in Canada
    or the US.
