    thanks, i'll look up on that old blurb. I wish i had been able to get an OG. There has to be
    some method out there for finding out how much alcohol is in a substance. I can't be the only
    person that h...

    Drink six ciders in an hour, rate your level of drunkenness.Haha, while that would be quite an
    enjoyable method I was hoping for something slightly more accurate. Im worried im just outta
    luck.

    Ya... I don't have the ability to obtain another sample of the base pear juice. It came from
    pears I juiced myself and the pears came from a couple pear trees in my back yard. I used all
    the pears on ...

    Ok so... I know in order to calculate your ABV you need your OG and your final gravity and the

    volume you n...

    You are gonna have the most unique cider ever. I hope it is only good and doesn't turn out

    I'm not sure about not being able to use ale yeast. Maybe he put it in with the campden
    tablet's?I ended up using campden tablets. If you put the yeast you intend on using in at the
    same time as the ...
