    Sorry for the repeat, but here is my question (also posted in the BN forums)I'm moving in
    2-weeks. I have some robust cascades and centennial hops in my garden and was hoping to carry
    the rhizomes ove...

    My experience has led me to believe you have to really try hard to get an under-attenuated
    cider. All of mine have finished out at or below 1.000. I decided to ferment this one cooler to
    see if some o...

    11/3/13 - SG: 1.028 (OG was 1.054) been fermenting at 56F. 47% attenuation thus far; still
    taste a little sulphur. Roused yeast and bumped to 60F. I will raise 1 deg per day to 65F.

    Thanks...I knew it was on the cool side. It took off and is VERY active. After 24+ hours of
    active fermentation, I added 1# of Clear Belgian Candy Sugar Syrup to bump the gravity to
    1.052. My chest fr...

    55F and ~48 hour lag before fermentation really got going. Next time I think I'll step the
    yeast up in 1L of cider before I pitch. With an OG of 1.046, anyone have any opinion on adding
    sugar? I have ...

    Fall = Cider. :D I do one batch a year and it lasts me till Spring.I'm trying to find some
    without preservatives right now.I have a second source of unpreserved/unpasteurized that I
    intend to tap into...

    Pitched 1 vial WLP775 26 hours after adding sodium metabisulfite. Oxygenated for ~50 seconds.
    Fermenter & carboy are steady at 57 degrees F. No activity at 24 hours since pitch. I remember
    cider yeast...

  • Posted in thread: 3 Gallon Batch= How Much Yeast? on 10-15-2013 at 06:53 PM
    You'll have no problems. Odds are you will still slightly under-pitch, but I've never had any
    issues on 2-6 gallon batches of cider with one vial of WLP775.
