    Thanks for the response. The yeast nutrient is a small bag of coarse white granules sold in
    bulk, so unfortunately I don't know offhand exactly what it is. It seems I missed some juice in
    the cleanup ...

    Yesterday I started a one gallon batch of mead with 2.5 lbs of honey and a gallon batch of
    cider with apple juice and 17 oz of dextrose. OG of both is near 1.090. I'm using Red Star
    champagne yeast in...

    I made it once and it took almost 3 months to clarify. At that point I could, as a forum member
    advised, read a newspaper through it. I would be patient for now.No worries on the SG. It's
    JOAM. You're...

    hmm... just calculated that I will have to use over 17 ounces of dextrose to get a gallon of
    apple juice up to 1.090. That's more dextrose than there is fruit sugar in the juice. Bad idea?
    I know the ...

    Old thread, but it's asking about the same question I have. I'm getting ready to do some 1
    gallon experiment batches. Tell me if this makes sense. Per this site and converting their
    liters to gallons,...

    This step in the recipe surprised me: "Open the packet of Montrachet Yeast and pour it into the
    neck of the funnel."No need to rehydrate the yeast?And thanks, Recluse. My juice is 26g of
    sugar and 30g...

    Well, I was careful to sanitize all the equipment. I use a no rinse sanitizer, so it's
    relatively idiot proof. Unfortunately, like I said, it was both gallon batches that had
    strawberries in them. It ...

    A tasty recipe that's really easy to make? Sounds great! I don't have a Sam's Club or Costco
    membership though, so I dropped by Walmart looking for apple juice. No "Tree Top". I got some
    pasteurized a...

    To me the aroma resembles that of the rubber stoppers. Not quite the same, but I'm definitely
    not getting sulfur out of it. Like I said though, it's not just the aroma. It tastes bad too.
    The strawber...

    It doesn't smell like sulfur though, at least not to me. Sorry, I don't know the gravities.
    Temperature would have been right around 70 degrees. A generic yeast nutrient from the brewing
    store was add...
