Got it, though it raises another concern. If all the yeast goes dormant (from low temps) and
I'm bottling, how will I accomplish carbonation?Again, I recognize these are newb questions.
I've brewed a ...

I'm still a total n00b at brewing, but 3/4 of a cup of corn sugar seems like a sure fire way to
get bottle bombs. I've only ever used a few oz of sugar to carb. Has anyone else actually
bottled this? ...

Just a thought but aren't ciders typically higher in ABV. Is that why we make them? Or is it
really for something else to make in place of beer.I would say that there is a wide variety in
ABV. And as ...
