    There's really no excuse. Pure laziness and the belief that an explosion wouldn't amount to
    much more than a few caps popping off. I learned otherwise. Mine's just another cautionary tale
    that further...

    How explosive is an over carbonated bottle in a 180 degree pot of water? Devastatingly
    explosive. How fast can a shard of glass fly after said bottle explodes? Faster than you can
    run-faster than you ...

    above link agrees with this scale: 1 ounce = 28.3495231 grams

    Thanks Yooper. It seemed like a champagne yeast should be a hearty strain but I figured I
    should verify. Anyone know if this scale fairly accurate for my purposes?

    My 4.5 gallons of cider(added honey to get to a 1.055 SG)Just fermented out to an FG of 1.00
    using Red Star Pasteur Champagne yeast.I'm not terribly familiar with this yeast; I normally
    use Safeale SO...

    I'm using Safale S04 (about 6 grams for a two gallon batch), two lbs brown sugar (I know that's
    alot). After 3.5 weeks, I took the cider off the cake and racked to secondary. Foolishly, I
    took a gravi...

    I wouldn't expect it to be ready by Thanksgiving. After fermentation you are still going to
    want to give it some time (possibly in the fridge), to mellow out and condition.

    Just started another batch. SG 1.068- Safale S04, started about 2 hrs ago, but no activity.
    Yeast initially sank to the bottom, some came back to the top. Last time I had activity within
    an hour. The ...

    Wow, that OP read more like a rant than I intended. I was shooting for a more apple-y flavor
    and was pretty disappointed with the finished product. I definitely botched the whole cold
    crashing operati...

    I started two gallons of cider on October 13th. Moved it off the cake on the bottom of the two
    2 gallon carboys yesterday and decided to stick it in the fridge as at 1.008 FG, it seemed
    ready to go.Th...
