Question for the bottlers...are you priming when bottling or letting it carb on it's own
without priming? Just bottled 5 gals last night and did not prime. Was in the primary for 16
days. Used Notty's...

Give it 2 weeks and pull a a sample for a gravity measurement (and taste, don't let those
samples go to waste...). Ale yeasts in general won't go down that far do to their tolerance
level. Always good...

Adding fermentables and trying to figure gravity during fermentation would drive me crazy.
There are guys on here that can figure that out. I'm not one of them. Was wondering what yeast
are you using?

You could use the same juice. That'll add volume also. Frozen concentrate (thawed) works great.
You'll be adding much more flavor with a lot less volume. For 3 gals add 2 to 3 12 oz
containers of conc...

Same holds true for whatever concentrate. Pasteurized and vit C no problem but no
preservatives. What yeast are you using?
