    ABOUT ME

  • I received a gift certificate to Midwest Brewing supplies for Christmas from my mother in 2010. I am a full boil extract brewer (no can kits) and I always steep specialty grains in my beers. I also have brewed a few variations of EdWort's Apfelwein. I have a kegmeister that I am adapting so it can also be used for 4 corny kegs or one commercial keg. Until now I have only brewed ales and Apfelwein but I am on the verge of my first lager, now that I learned from HBT you can lager in the keg!

    Sounds good, I am currently making a batch from juice, maybe it is an issue with my equipment.
    One thing i did notice is that the juice is pastureized and the concentrate says nothing of
    pastuerizatio...

    The only additives to the juice are asorbic acid.I did take my SG reading but did not get a FG
    because I dumped it halfway through racking. It is like fermentation starts and finnishes (

    I have been making cider for about a year now and have made 5 batches using apple juice and dry
    yeast without any problems. It always turned out fantastic! The last batch that i made with
    juice I back...

  • Posted in thread: Back Sweetening Splenda Vs. Lactose on 02-03-2012 at 06:33 PM
    I ended up back sweetening it with 1 gallon of apple juice. Turned out great! I kegged most of
    the cider and bottled the rest. When the bottles carbed up I threw them in the dishwasher to
    pasteurize. ...

    Here's an idea for bottling, I am going to keg some cider and bottle what I have left over.

  • Posted in thread: Back Sweetening Splenda Vs. Lactose on 12-15-2011 at 07:52 PM
    Thanks ACbrewer!That would work great, I will probably just back sweeten with apple juice in my
    bottling bucket keg most of it and bottle the rest and pasteurize the bottles when they are
    ready.

  • Posted in thread: Back Sweetening Splenda Vs. Lactose on 12-12-2011 at 10:38 PM
    I am thinking about back sweetening a cider, but I am unsure if I should go with splenda or
    lactose. Anyone have a taste preference? I don't want it to taste like diet soda (I have had a
    few diet soda...

    ^^^winner! Nice first post and welcome!Thanks!

  • Posted in thread: carbonation/bottle conditioning eat sugars too? on 12-07-2011 at 01:52 AM
    The yeast will eat up the sugar to carb the beer. Keep an eye on it if it is really sweet so
    you don't have bottle bombs.Cheers!

    I am fairly new to brewing also. (6 batches) I don't think you made any critical errors. I
    always top of my primary with water, that way you can get your full 5 gal out of a batch. Some
