I live in Australia now but am going home to North America next weekend to visit. I figured I'd
brew this up while there, so that when I return a year later it will be ready for bottling.My

I ended up with an ABV of 9% after secondary (OG 1.079, FG 1.010). While I like a strong beer,
9% is a bit much, especially considering I brewed this to share with family this Christmas. I'm

I brewed this earlier this month, and without thinking racked to secondary after 10 days. It's

Posted in thread: Do I need to worry about bottle bombs if I've let my cider fully ferment? on 11-19-2012 at 10:35 PM
When I bottled and primed my unpasteurized cider last week, it had been fermenting for over a

I brew in two-gallon batches, which affords me more convenience in some ways and less in

only equipment ...
Posted in thread: Can you identify these floaters in my post-primary cider? on 11-14-2012 at 07:59 PM
Thanks for the input, all. I've just picked up some campden tablets and will be racking

Posted in thread: Ok to harvest yeast from a fermented unpasteurized cider? on 11-13-2012 at 10:00 PM
