    Call the brewery? Don't they own the kegs?This. Kegs are a huge expense for breweries. Last
    year I ended up with 2 1/2bbl kegs due to a mix-up. Called the brewery. Turns out they had
    switched to micro...

  • Posted in thread: How do the commercial breweries do it? on 05-28-2015 at 09:29 PM
    There are two main ways commercial cideries end up with sweet products.The first is to take an
    apple base (concentrate or juice) and chapetalize it to 10%-15% ABV before fermenting dry. This
    dry cider...

    Based on your post history it looks like you're trying to go commercial. HBT is a homebrew
    forum, you'll have better luck asking questions over at probrewer.com which is commercially
    oriented. Try Pal...

    Never heard of a fortified flor cider, shouldn't be to difficult though.A lower ABV, say,

    Yes, it's called Pommeau, traditionally from the cider regions of northern France. A few
    commercial examples exist in the US as well.Made one a few years ago with a combination of
    bittersweets and sha...

    Yup, 2 volumes. Above that and you must pay the so called 'champagne tax'.

  • Posted in thread: need help placing iced cider on 02-21-2015 at 05:38 PM
    28D 'Other Specialty Cider/Perry' is where it should go, by virtue of not fitting in any other
    category.

  • Posted in thread: Cider yeast question on 02-21-2015 at 05:31 PM
    I bet it's fine. Re-hydrating yeast in water before pitching is better but not necessary. If,
    after 72 hours your hydrometer doesn't show any sign of fermentation then simply re-pitch more
    yeast.

    Priming a dry cider for carbonation is very easy.Here's a quick rundown (it's for beer, but a
    dry cider is the same process)

  • Posted in thread: Secondary fermentation on 01-10-2015 at 02:59 PM
    Nothing to do with pectic enzyme. As mentioned above, it's likely just CO2 degassing or the
    last breaths of fermentation.
