    Im guessing I can get a hydrometer at my local HBS? Thank you for the answers. I was a little
    worried because our air conditioner broke last week and the temperature got up to like 86 or 88

  • Posted in thread: Few questions about my cider on 10-11-2012 at 11:06 PM
    1. I bottled my cider yesterday and it was much more work than I anticipated. The red baron

    So ciders usually stop fermenting at .990 right? Is there any calculators out there that tell

    Today is roughly 7 weeks in primary and I noticed that it only now looks like it's clearing. At
    5 and 6 weeks it was still pretty cloudy. How clear does this get anyway? Does it get as clear

    So heres a question. So, I just found out about carb tablets... Would it be possible to use
    campden tabs to kill off all yeast, then add Carb tabs to get desired carbonation? That way you
