    Sounds tasty, don't see why it wouldn't be good. I have a recipe for pumpkin wine that calls
    for 6 pounds of pumpkin meat. Remove seeds and stringy material, then mash or grind into a
    nylon straining ...

    Your still way to early to bottle, I would guess between 10 and 12 weeks before it's ready.
    From the batches I've make that's the norm, but that's also with dry wine yeast. May be able to
    bottle quick...

  • Posted in thread: Carbonating cider ? Any against it? on 12-18-2005 at 11:12 PM
    It's all in what you like. I like it still with no carbonation and usually draw off a gallon or
    so at a time straight from a carboy. Sweetness can be controlled in many ways, think the
    easiest is in y...

  • Posted in thread: Cider VS Juice on 12-18-2005 at 01:48 AM
    I've used juice and cider, have had good results with both. If I'm buying juice I look for the
    stuff that's 100% apple juice with asorbic acid, cider I try and buy the ones that are just
    flash pasturi...

    Of the choices you've listed, I'd use the Red Star. Red Star does make a couple different
    yeasts though, not sure which one your talking about. Not saying the others you've listed are
    bad choices, but...

    Just a thought, but whenever I use cinnamon, honey, or dark brown sugar the batch tastes like
    crap. In my opinion, simple is better. Apple juice, sugar, and yeast.

    Everything seems pretty normal, should start to slow down a little in a couple days. From what
    I've seen, sounds like your right where it should be for week old stuff. Can't wait until you
    give it a t...

  • Posted in thread: OK, how about this recipe? on 10-19-2005 at 11:43 PM
    Forgot to mention, I don't use any tablets. At around 3 months when it's clear and no more
    activity is when I draw off 1/2 gallon or sometimes a gallon at a time to drink. I never have
    messed around w...
