    20 minutes if the water is hot, significantly more time if its cool. So the first couple
    batches go faster for me. Lately I've added phosphate free TSP to the mix in varying
    proportions, but not seen ...

    Question, is it a 3.5g cider back sweetened with .5g or 4g with some cherry juice fwrmented
    alongside the apple? I assume 3.5 but first post didn't specify explicitly. Have you gotten a
    gravity readin...

    So just wondering how you carbed? How much dextrose per gallon in particular? Looking to try
    this soon, looks great!!! :tank:I do it the same way I do my apfelwein, which is the same

    Making this tonight, went a little overboard with a full pound of sugar. Was originally going
    to make apfelwein so I assumed this would have at least a pound (I was reading the first page
    on my phone ...

    Hmm, lets see. 4 gallons of juice with a typical gravity of 1.050 an 1 lb of sugar gives you an
    approximate OG of 1.061. Assuming an extremely low finish, that's actually pretty common with
    cider vari...

    I currently have this fermenting away and am debating about how to do the vanilla beans:1) Cut
    up and throw in secondary (as per recipe)2) Soak in vodka 24hr, add all a week before
    bottling3) Soak in ...

    If you are clear, it is most likely degassed anyway. I never did it to my first batch that
    turned out crystal clear and still.Are you planning on carbing it or just bottling it still?
