    Kevin,We talked about meeting up sometime. I'll be down your way this weekend (in Crozet). Not
    sure if you have the time or how much time I'll have, but I'll bring a few ciders and meads
    with me. :)I'...

    I think this is the only good answer to the ever present "how can I make a sweet, carbonated,
    cider".There is another way.I backsweeten (with honey) and then force-carbonate (via keg) and
    then bottle....

    I used 2 pounds and 3 pounds of raspberries for a 3 gallon batch for 2 different batches. I

    the fresh cider, will these be a threat after fermentation? E. coli only comes from animal
    feces. If they ...

    Let me clarify.I always fermented until the yeast was done, and then backsweetened (to about
    1.015-1.018) - same as I do with meads. (I'll try cold crashing this year.)I generally use
    Nottingham and I...

    Kevin,Thanks for all the great info.Some comments/questions:CO2 inhibits fermentation (I'm not
    sure of the complete mechanism, but carbonic acid probably plays a role). I've done batches
    where I bottl...
