    Cuz I'm relatively new and didn't know better? Was this a terrible idea? I planned to dry hop
    the cider and did so shortly after yooper answered. I used 11 grams of fuggle in one jug and
    5.5 grams in ...

    Thanks yooper! I'll definitely do that.

    I started a 3 gallon batch of cider on 11.20.13:Fresh juice, 300 gm pale DME, 1 cup candi
    syrup, soaked cooked and strained oats, Nottingham yeast. O.G. 1.063 Started fermenting like
    normal. I added s...

    Last year I made some candi syrup for a cider. I had some left over after I had reached my
    desired gravity, poured it - still hot - into a "clean" not sterilized jar and closed it up.
    It's not bulging...

    Thanks for the help. They smelled good so I hope all is not lost. Take away: always keep topped
    up! got it.

    Could the bacteria have produced any byproducts that could potentially hurt me? Or are the
    bacteria that grow in this type of medium generally harmless? I am bottling and pasteurizing
    today as I inten...

    Bummer. Thanks for the reply. I'm planning on pasteurizing right after bottling. Do I still
    need to add sulfites or will the pasteurization be enough?

  • Posted in thread: Gah! Film on top! on 10-13-2012 at 09:42 PM
    I decided today would be as good a day as any to bottle three of my 1 gallon batch ciders that
    have been doing their thing in a closet for the past 7 months.I moved one to the kitchen and
    noticed ther...

    I guess it just sounded like a good idea at the time (easily fermentable sugar to boost OG.) In
    hindsight I would have probably just added more honey. So you wouldn't re-rack even though its
    blowing o...

    So I racked onto a muslin bag full of thawed crushed blackberries at about 1.000I didn't think
    they would add enough sugar to start the fermentation again, but alas my naivety foils me yet
    again. Anyw...
