Wouldn't potassium sorbate be a much simpler solution since you have the ability to force carb?
I assume if you have a keggle and a PID, you have the ability to carb... Or is your method to
keep from ...

If you were at a specific gravity around 1.000 and didn't prime the cider for carbonation, it
will be flat. There aren't any sugars left for the yeast to produce the CO2 needed.Did you add
juice or pr...

Congrats. I've never had one ferment that vigorously. What temp are you fermenting at?

Demerara adds a nice flavor. I don't think it adds as much caramel character as dark brown

I've never heard of anyone else on this forum describe a musky/musty smell except myself. I
thought maybe I was just imagining it. I only get these musky/musty aroma and flavors when I

Posted in thread: Does using a few different brands of cider/AJ increase complexity? on 02-14-2014 at 02:20 AM
