  • Posted in thread: Cider Priming Experimentation on 06-27-2013 at 09:07 PM
    Update: Turns out my guess about the fermentability of fruits such as berries in particular was
    totally wrong. Apparently fermentable sugars in these berries is approx 4.5% of which a boil
    will yield ...

    Use fruit extract. A 4 ozs container will do about 5 gallons. Just add to the priming sugar and
    prime as normal. The fruit extract flavorings you get at the LHBS is non-fermentable. Makes
    things a lot...

    Also, be prepared for a slower carb time. I imagine whatever fruit sugars the yeast are eating
    will be slightly less fermentable than dextrose.True, not only less fermentable sugars but more
    complex r...

    I don't even bother with a bottling bucket. I just dump the priming solution into the primary,
    give it a gentle stir and give it a day to settle back down.Saves the hassle of having to do an
    extra san...

    Yeah killing the yeast won't be an option, it'll be bottle conditioning all the way. I'm not
    sure what the yeast is... just a generic yeast that comes with the cider kit... it's a nice kit
    though I ma...

    It's Summer and Id like to finish of my cider (that's been fermenting for over 2 weeks) with a
    fruity hint... so I was thinking, instead of priming with sugar or honey.. why not try doing up
    a fruit c...

  • Posted in thread: Is my English bitter ok? on 11-19-2011 at 02:33 PM
    It's absolutely fine. I never even bother to check it before 10 days, then usually take a
    reading on day 10, day 12 and day 14 to make sure it's finished. I'm doing a bitter myself at
    the moment, 1.03...

    Ok I think I'll go with the Bitter kit then with 1kg of this stuff. It's comes hopped too so
    bonus. Plus 200-300gms of the muscovado. And then I'll boil the spices and stuff for 15-20
    mins, strain em ...

    Thanks for all the tips, didn't realize hops didn't add bitterness at 20mins. I'm after reading
    around a bit. One website talks about winter warmers/ales. It says that in the The Beer Judge
    Certificat...

  • Posted in thread: Coopers Pilsner with a Christmas twist on 11-14-2011 at 05:43 PM
    Learning. So I'm now thinking 500gms dme and 600-700 muscovado? Maybe some extra hops. You
    mention adding the hops about 20 minutes "from the end of the boil". Surely if it's an extract
    kit with dme t...
