    Why not partial mash, add your LME and then your hop additions all in the kettle, put that in
    primary and then fill the primary with cold water until you reach five gallons? This will lower
    the temp. ...

    Thought I'd post an update on this. I was out of town for a couple months and returned to find
    crystal clear cider. All the "chunks" seem to have settled, but I still have to pour it
    carefully.cider p...

    Any info on your procedure, ingredients? Cider typically ferments slower, let it sit and be
    patient.

    My Jack LaLane juicer leaves behind no mush. The thing is fast and efficient. You could not
    squeeze any juice out of the leavings! In fact I toss them in a cardboard box when the bin gets
    full and it ...

    Is it alright to open up one of my ciders that is one week in to see how far along it is and
    stir in more sugar? Or is that bad? Recommendations? Thanks.The more you open it up the more
    chances you ha...

    I'm not sure the cherries will mix well with the honey and brown sugar. When I used honey I
    wasn't real impressed with the results. I prefer caramel, but that's just me. The S-04 is what
    I'm going to ...

  • Posted in thread: "Belgian" Cider on 09-22-2011 at 02:45 PM
    I would hold off on the candi sugar and use caramel. I use the 3787 with great results.

    He could wait for it to hit his target gravity, bottle, give it some time to carbonate, then
    cold crash and probably still end up with a sweet cider. As long as he uses plastic bottles or
    swing top bo...

    If the yeast die from to much alcohol then adding more yeast won't help. What abv were you
    going for? Why so much sugar? If there has been a change in gravity then ferementation IS
    taking place.
