    I recently tried mangrove jack cider yeast, very pleasently impressed.Why i ask is that many
    yeast have different alcohol levels they can attain, hence how much sugar is leftover.Thanks
    for the info. ...

    I used four different yeasts and I can't tell quite yet if there are any that are preferable.
    There are some that were "yeasty" tasting even after rack'ing and after several weeks, while
    others were n...

    I'm into my 8th thru 12th gallon. I've made some that tasted pretty good, others that are not
    so great. Part of what has made my brew a little peculiar is having used coconut sugar. It is a
    bit of a n...

    Cider is usually forgiving, so don't stress too much.Did you check the gravity before racking?
    That will determine next steps regarding sorbate or topping up.If the gravity was >1.000 then
    your cider ...

    until now, but in all fourgallons I have at least 2 cups gone. I have not added campden or

    Hi, I've got all the above racked once and in the frige, but I'm wondering if it should be back
    at room temperature? I'm hoping I can do that because I don't want to take up 4 gallons worth
    of space i...

    First two gallons were M02 Cider yeast and the bubbling slowed considerably by day 4. After
    reading 90 seconds between bubbles, I stopped counting and decided I'd take readings in week.
    2nd two gallon...

    I was thinking of doing that. Always good to get the reinforcement from folks who've already

    another question... my most active batch started Saturday has slowed quite a bit on the

    used to be several p...
