    I have never made a cider before. Can you bottle this with regular beer bottles or does it have
    to be wine bottles?Wine bottles if still(non-carbonated) and beer or champagne bottle if
    carbonated.

  • Posted in thread: Need advice. fermentation speed and temperature with sweet cider on 01-17-2012 at 02:16 AM
    I know that when making a dry cider, it is always recommended to ferment slowly in a cool
    environment in order to preserve aromas but does the same principle apply if making a sweet
    carbonated cider t...

    You are going to loose some, but I found it to be insignificant. The one that I opened recapped
    and pasteurized on the same day still had plenty of CO2 when I drank it. Think of it like this
    if you ha...

    possible to taste the chemicals after you add them ?Is this right: 1/2 teaspoon of potassium
    sorbate and...
