    I think you said you used Notty for your yeast. You should be able to get 12% out of that
    yeast. How long total between brew day and bottle day? It probably just dropped out of solution
    if you did any...

    Hmm. So it seems to not be carbing for me. I bottled a week ago yesterday (monday) it did carb
    a little but not as much as it has in the past or how much I like. Anyone smarter than me know
    any tricks...

    Cool. I have a window A/C unit I could install in my spare bedroom to help keep it cool. :) May
    do that just to help keep the room cool and thus the cider cool. :) I like to add extra sugar
    as well fo...

    Great! Thanks. I've been trying to start it off in the low 60's to help avoid off flavors, but

    I'm thinking of making a batch of this in my new plastic conical, but I don't have any way to
    control the temp. I have a spare bedroom which is kinda chilly. I tend to keep my house in the
    upper 60's ...

    Per post #420, 1/2 tsp. but I now use 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon extract and 3/4 tsp vanilla. Really
    adds to the "apple pie" flavor concept. And last batch, I had no cinnamon extract at kegging,
    so I put 2 ci...

    Made my second batch of this last week using fresh unpasteurized cider. Added more sugar and my
    target is 10.5% abv

    I made this last saturday I think it was and got a OG of 1.062. I pitched the yeast and I
    checked it today and FG is already down to 1.012. Has anyone else had it finish so quickly?? I
    had my 1 gallon...

    I believe anything unpasteurized.

    If your family isn't familiar with homebrews it might be a good idea to give them some warning
    about sediment, and to do something like "pour easily and don't disturb the yeast cake at the
    bottom of t...
