I'm definitely leaning more toward a wine with this batch. Just because I get a really really
bad hangover with the sweet stuff. My roommate likes it but I'm just not a big fan, the home
brew store is...

Not my first time making cider, but nearly. So here's a few questions I have yet to get a clear
answer on. I bought 5 gallons of fresh pressed cider (3 Fuji 2 Granny Smith) from my homebrew
store. My ...
Posted in thread: Carbonated in fermenter... what now? on 10-25-2009 at 12:02 AM
Well, I accidentally put too much water in the pan I used as a blowoff valve. And it looks like
the gas couldn't escape so my cider is now carbonated. It was bubbling along for 3 or 4 days

Hmm, yeah I feared the pickle smell would be unbeatable. I'll head to the Acme bakery this
afternoon and see what they have, icing and the like would be considerably easier to get out
(and at the end ...

I stumbled across International Pickle Bucket Rescue League. I guess this is how pickles are
delivered to most burger joints/greasy spoon restaurants. I haven't attempted to clean these
out yet, and I...

Well, I just re-hydrated it and tossed it in to 2.5 gallons of Acme Cider. It's pasteurized but
the only preservatives in it is Vitamin C (I read somewhere that this is OK?). I'll snap a

First off, long time lurker, first time poster. I've been brewing for a few months now (just
finished my second batch). In my last order from Midwest Supplies they threw in an extra packet
of dry yeas...
