    than 24 hrs!I've sampled it and it's noticeably dryer than yesterday. So I'm going to bottle
    the lot tod...

    Thanks. That's exactly what I've got. Thanks to Domino Pizza (who give 2 x 1l bottles of Pepsi
    with each large order).Great idea about the bottling. I'd never considered that. However, I
    normally like...

    Several questions:1. If I should not care about the starting gravity, then why does almost
    every recipe mention it?2. Several people said here that taking OG reading makes sense only for
    all-grain bre...

    My point was that hydrometer readings tend to make the whole process more anal than necessary.
    I'm going to drink almost anything I can make regardless of the OG readings, and prefer to have
    something...

    With your nationality you should have no problem deciphering whether or not measurements are in
    US pounds or metrics. As for myself, I would consider the source of the recipe (US or not).
    Last I check...

    No you're not wasting your time. If it's pastuerized it'll work. That's all I've been using for
    the past 6 months and I can get a very fine cider out of it. Check my other posts for my
    recipes and pro...

    It will ferment based on how much fermentable sugar is in the solution, and how much yeast
    there is in there to ferment it. You can't really stop it, or at least not very easily. The
    downside of bottl...

    I have found that (as a Brit) I'm constantly having to calculate between different measuring
    standards - US gallons to Imperial, metric to US etc etc.Most recipes I have found on the net
    do not specif...
