    If you want cloudy cider, use unripe apples which will have a higher starch content. Or use
    apples that are recommended for applesauce, because they have a lot of pectin. Romes are good
    for this, they...

    Great post! I think the debate about whether the juice, yeast, or process has more impact on
    final flavor really comes down to whether or not you have dialed in your juice source and
    process. Now that...

    Would crashing say 1,015 be ok with s04?Sorry for slow response. Yes, you can crash S04 at
    1.015. To my taste, the ale yeasts can be a little sticky in the finish (like a soda) if the
    final sg is abov...

    I didn't have any issue when I added the honey, but I took some apple juice that I shook up to
    get the rest of the honey out and it flared up after I added that. Not too bad
    though.Interesting. I supp...

    Will see how it turns out since I am using one of the yeasts not recommended.I didnt have much
    luck with WB-06. OTOH, the best yeast to use is very much dependent on the juice, so hopefully
    it will li...

    I was wondering why the OP mainly uses ale yeastsThree reasons: (1) Most Ale yeasts will go
    dormant and drop to the bottom of the carboy if you cold crash the cider. This makes it
    relatively easy to ...

    Yep, I got home today and the airlock was going nuts. Strange I stared at it for a full 3
    minutes this morning, no movement.That sound like what one of my BRY97 batches did. I dont have
    any explanatio...

    The flavor is pretty darn good. Maybe a bit dryer then I like. I crashed this at 1.008 I
    believe. My next batch I crashed around 1.010 or 1.012 if i remember correctly. So Hopefully I
    will get a bit m...

    I tried bry97 and it won't seem to start. I pitched Friday night and it's at about 68 degrees.
    I have an extra pack of Nottingham, should I wait or just pitch notty? All 3 other buckets
    started (diffe...

  • Posted in thread: Results from juice, yeast and sugar experiments on 02-01-2015 at 11:17 PM
    I DO have 2oz of yeast nutrient I can use. Since I'm fermenting a "half batch" could I also use
    a whole pack of yeast to help ferment out, or would the ammount of yeast have no effect?You can
    use the ...
