Maybe I'm exaggerating how bad it is. I don't really like the taste of normal wort either, but
it's a noticeable difference to me.Sent from my iPhone using HB Talk

Are any of you no-chill brewers tasting your wort before you pitch the yeast? I'm talking about
straight out of the no-chill container, after its cooled down. I only ask because something
that is stil...

I'm fine with slow fermentation, I just don't want my yeast to crap out halfway through and

I'm excited that it's finally fall and my basement is cool enough to ferment ales again (in

S-04 is my favorite yeast for doing apple cider, though I don't usually add additional sugar,
so its more of a "draft-style" cider rather than an apple wine. I don't see why it wouldn't
work well with...

Just an update on my situation. I racked the first no-chill batch to the secondary after about
a week and tasted it (normally I would have let it be, but I needed the primary for another
batch). It ap...
