  • Posted in thread: Back sweeten cider + bottle priming on 06-20-2012 at 09:16 PM
    My carbing, once bottled (about 12 hours after having back sweetened the batch with ~30%
    juice), took less than 2 days, and by that I mean I HAD to pasteurize when I did. Had I left it
    any longer, I w...

    Yes, that scummy layer is (or will be soon) the baby!I went through the same thing when I
    started brewing kombucha. Rest assured that most of the weird looking stuff you see is just
    part of the proces...

    It's still a little harsh and yeasty, but I've not given up on it yet... I'll see what happens
    after a week or so bottled. I'm happy to just leave it for a few months, even. Even so, now,

    I was surprised, but my plastic tester bottle was solid, and when I opened it and 'reset' it,
    it got solid again really fast (I did this a number of times just to make sure, since it had
    seemed so fas...

    Best of luck in your cider endeavors!!!I'm afraid it may be difficult for you to replicate the
    English ciders you are so fond of with the juice available in the grocery stores. You may need
    to play ar...

    You can do it with juice but it will take a lot more volumn and you will dilute your abv%. I'm
    actually looking for an ABV reduction, so I went with the Gravenstein juice (well, pure 'apple
    cider', I ...

    Thanks, LeBreton! I currently have 2.5 gallons of the stuff. How much apple juice concentrate
    would you recommend, and could I just use more of the original Gravenstein juice? Should I then
    bottle it ...

    Hello all!I started my first batch of cider 7 weeks ago. Had it in primary for 2 weeks, and in
    secondary for 5. I've just moved it from there into a couple of gallon jugs, because I don't
    think I got ...
