  • Posted in thread: Homebrewtalk Carboy Cleaner Giveaway on 11-20-2011 at 12:04 PM
    I would like a carboy cleaner because I'm worried about getting scratches in my Better Bottles
    using my carboy brush.

    You can always use a little less honey...I suppose I will.My original plan was to keep adding
    honey to the point where I'm left with a sweet, still cyser. After I did the math, though, I
    realized I do...

    That's good to hear! I have some other yeast but I like how Notty leaves some good flavor
    behind compared to some of the champagne yeasts I've used.After doing some calculations, it
    seems 3 lbs of hon...

    So I'm going to attempt making my first cyser. I've done a few batches of cider and beer, so
    this is new to me. Here's what I have:3 gallon carboy3 gallons apple juice~4lbs honeyNottingham

    What kind of yeast did you use?What was your original gravity reading? Ive bottled plain juice
    & yeast ciders fermented with Nottingham at 1.008 and primed with 8oz. apple juice/gallon and
    never had a...

    I know Nottingham will ferment out to around 10%, even though many sources claim its lower.If
    you bump up the SG a little, and are able to cold crash it once you get to the sweetness level
    you want, t...

    If you have a hydrometer, use that to tell you if it's done fermenting. Airlocks aren't as
    reliable as hydrometers, so make sure it's done before bottling to prevent bottle bombs.If it's
    TRULY done, t...

    I wouldn't think you'd get more than a couple inches at most. Good thing to have a blow off
    just in case!Eric

    I currently have 2.5 gal in a 3 gal carboy with about an inch of krausen. if you fill a 5 gal
    carboy full, then you might need a blow-off tube or else you might end up with an airlock full
    of cider an...

    If you plan on using yeast nutrient/energizer, make sure you have a blowoff tube installed on
    your fermenter. Its been my experience that nutrients/energizer tend to make for a healthy
    ferment, albeit...
