  • Posted in thread: Interesting Cider yeast to try on 12-20-2016 at 07:17 PM
    Too bad we couldn't get it in October during fresh juice season (at least in Northern
    Hemisphere). Any Aussies or South Americans order this yeast??They don't ship here.

    As above said, use a hydrometer to measure the specific gravity, the same reading over a few
    days is a bet...

    Pectinase can be added post fermentation but isn't as effective due to the presence of alcohol.

    It won't kill the yeast and it probably won't affect the fermentation at all in the first week

    Air lock bubbling is not a good indicator of active fermentation, you might have a leak around
    the bung or lid which is allowing CO2 to escape.As a side note, no need for pectinase in juice
    unless it'...
