  • Posted in thread: Cider too dry on 01-05-2016 at 02:55 AM
    The smart alec in me wants to say that no, your cider has not gone too dry...that's impossible.
    Then I realize that each of us has our own personal taste and preference and for some that is
    sweeter dr...

  • Posted in thread: Apple / Grape Cider on 01-05-2016 at 02:50 AM
    My opinion is to wait. A few weeks isn't enough time. None of my ciders have tasted anything
    like the finished product when they were that young. All of my ciders that I started in
    mid-September are s...

    What yeast were you using? I had some bottles of ginger ale blow in my fridge. I used EC1118.

    How do they taste? I've never found an ornamental crabapple that was even close to edible, and
    haven't even tried to press them. But 1.070 means quite a lot of sugar!I'd say they taste
    awful. I haven'...

    I found 50 ornamental crabapple trees. They are the size of a wild cheery (pea). Bright red.
    Bitter. Really sweet. Crazy towel mouth. Are these any good in a blend for cider?Just picked
    about 14 gallo...

    I make a fantastic 100% crabapple wine. The mix is about 50% rescue (like dolgos) and 50%
    centennial crabs. I tend to use 6 pounds per gallon, crushed and then pressed (or squeezed) and
    dilute with a ...

  • Posted in thread: How many gallons of cider in 2015 on 10-03-2015 at 12:42 AM
    I am at a lowly 21 gallons in primary, soon to racked into secondary. I went to a nursery this
    evening and gathered some of the windfalls. Will be pressing tomorrow and I think it will add
    another 6 o...

    Hmm, I just got my OBK order today, fast shipping. But, the yeast was produced in May 2015 and
    we're just into October now. Seems a little on the old side to me.As far as I could see on my
    yeasts my p...

  • Posted in thread: Pectinase post grind, pre-press on 09-30-2015 at 04:17 AM
    I am planning on pressing some tiny ornamental crabs to add some body to cider I suspect is
    going to turn out bland. These things are the size of cherries, quite hard, have a very bitter
    taste with so...

  • Posted in thread: Acid blend??? on 09-29-2015 at 02:35 AM
    It really depends. We pressed some cider yesterday, and it had plenty of acid bite to it so I
    told the guy making the hard cider out of it to "wait and see". What I often do is take out a
    sample of th...
