    Yes, I always do, I think this is usual practice. I THINK it is to encourage the chosen yeast
    to dominate and multiply, rather than less favourable living organisms which may be in the
    mix!I did a qui...

    Dont put your pectic enzyme in the boiling solution as it will break it down. Put it in with
    your yeast and nutrient once it has cooled!

    Recommended dose of Pectic Enzyme is .5 t ( half a teaspoon ) per gallon. I find this amount
    works just fineI would use 1 tsp per UK gallon when making from cartons or bottles of

    The spread sheet really is brilliant! I think there is a version with imperial and US measures
    which will make things easier for you. It takes a little while to get used to the spread sheet
    but I use ...

    If its a vinegary taste it may have oxidised :-(. Apples are very prone to oxidation (note how
    quickly they brown one you bite into them). If you make from real apples, one you cut them,
    make sure you...
