    Update: 10 days pass and I declare cider brilliance... The carbonation level is delightful with

    Update: I opted to dissolve both the sugar and Splenda in water first. For the sugar I used 2
    cups dissolved in 2 cups of water for a volume of 27 ounces. One cup of this was added to most

    Thanks for posting that.Actually in my limited experience, about 3 years of brewing, I've never
    seen that and so I will keep a few of these bottles around for a few more days to check up on
    them.I hav...

    I'm experiencing a lot of problems with gushering. I've checked through the threads and still
    have a couple of questions on this important topic:The problem showed up at some level on
    everything I've ...

    Nah, the intent was just to produce some flavorful amber IPA type using cascade. The vinegar
    made the batches undrinkable.You're right about the bucket in general, I am pretty sure that in
    addition to...
