  • Posted in thread: Cider X-Post: Apple juice vendors? on 07-25-2013 at 08:25 PM
    Did you ever find any cider source ?I didn't, no. I ended up going to Carlson in person and
    buying ten gallons straight from their giant tank. It all fermented nicely and is currently
    aging in a used ...

    I'm buying raw pressed cider. Carlson Orchards is fine, the juice is delicious for drinking
    straight, but it doesn't make the best cider ever. I just spoke to them on the phone and they
    specifically s...

    So I make cider in the fall, and I'm looking for a good local orchard that will provide juice
    made primarily from bittersweet or bittersharp apples. I've been going to Carlson Orchards (
    who provides...

    I live in Boston and I've been getting my juice from these guys: haven't had a lot of success
    despite my best efforts, so in the tradition of lazy bastards everywhere I'm blaming my juice
    source rat...

    I've decided that I'm going to name my ciders after significant events in my life. One of them
    is going to be called A&A, after two girls I know named Alicia and Amanda. (The label will be
    reminiscent...

  • Posted in thread: Lees in the bottle after carbing? on 03-06-2012 at 11:23 PM
    Last December I brewed a cider and bottled it after "a few days" of fermentation (that's as
    specific as my notes go - this was only my second batch, give me a break) while it was still
    going strong. I...

  • Posted in thread: Will pasteurized cider continue to age? on 12-31-2011 at 04:25 AM
    If you had bottle bombs, then I don't think it was done fermenting. Stove top pasteurizing will
    put a stop to the fermenting and prevent bottle bombs. And yeah, you do need a hydrometer.If
    you mean it...

  • Posted in thread: Will pasteurized cider continue to age? on 12-30-2011 at 05:19 AM
    I didn't do any gravity readings. I just let it ferment out (straight apple cider, Red Star
    champagne yeast, 1tsp nutrient) then racked to secondary for a week, then bottled. I suppose
    since I am now ...

  • Posted in thread: Will pasteurized cider continue to age? on 12-26-2011 at 03:51 PM
    So I bottled my first cider about a month ago. Decided to open one on Christmas to see how it's
    doing. It's basically colored JP8 at this point. If I pasteurized them, will they continue to
    develop in...

    What is your reason for adding brown sugar? If it's part of the recipe, you should've put it in
    primary. If it's backsweetening or priming sugar, you added it too early because it will just
    ferment in...
