  • Posted in thread: Which Yeast? on 11-01-2014 at 10:13 PM
    What about with the method I've seen on some recipes where there's only a 2 week fermentation?
    If I wanted it to be in the 5-6% alcohol range, could I use one of those methods? Ferment for 2
    weeks, bo...

    Hey Yooper can you point me towards a thread with the steps for making a simple cider. That is
    what I'd like to do. There's an orchard near me that will fill your fermenter or carboy for
    $4/gallon. My...

    Well it looks like it's been two weeks now and I just left them in the basement this entire
    time. I opened one up tonight, total gusher, probably 80-90% on my counter top. Is this
    salvageable? Pasteur...

    Yeah I added a fresh 1/2 gallon to my bottling bucket. Figured I could both back sweeten and
    use it as the priming sugar. I'll just let it ride and see what happens, it is delicious so
    far, just didn'...

    Well cider is full of sugar so I figured that would do it.

    Bear with me, I haven't kept good records. I started with 2 gallons of local cider and an
    entire vile of cider yeast and that's it. I don't remember the gravity numbers but I checked
    the gravity after...

  • Posted in thread: High OG and extra headspace on 09-15-2013 at 09:37 PM
    I'm working on my first wine. I didn't measure the OG when I mixed everything. I just followed
    the recipe which gave me a whopping 1.114. I transferred to a 5 gallon carboy yesterday and it
    measured a...

  • Posted in thread: Can I use green peaches? on 09-10-2013 at 12:50 AM
    I used Vitners Harvest MA33 and I did not use a nutrient. It smelled pretty delicious before I
    added the yeast. I'm afraid to smell it now, I made that mistake once with fermenting beer and
    got face f...

  • Posted in thread: Can I use green peaches? on 09-09-2013 at 03:54 PM
    Well this is where I'm at at this point. A lot of the peaches were pretty tasty already. As I
    cleaned and sliced them to make the wine my kids were devouring my slices. Some were still too
    hard and gr...

  • Posted in thread: Can I use green peaches? on 09-02-2013 at 04:14 PM
    Yeah, still a ton more left. I initially didn't plan on making any wine. My plan was to can and
    eat what's on the tree. The wine was more of a what the hell can I do with all of these other
    peaches?
