I pasteurize to stop the fermentation without adding any chemicals.

Why soak the sticks in vodka?

Spice question

I make a sweet simple cider that I start at 1.076 and stop at 1.032 by pasteurizing in the keg submerged in water on a turkey fryer. I'd like to add cinnamon to it.

Having never added anything...

I'm no expert but I think that will off gas and clear up pretty good. If it were me I'd rack to a secondary and leave it be for awhile (maybe 3 months? 6 months? or a year? up to you, check it every...

I don't know about rum. The OG of my juice was like 1.035 so I jacked it up to 1.056 with the sugar (disolved in as little water as I could; it was like runny syrup when I added it to the juice)...

It seems to me that if you're going to kill these in one day/night icing shouldn't be a big deal. Lay your hands on one of those half barrel type coolers (you know, like you see commercial kegs...

It mellowed some with refrigeration. Then me and my buddy proceeded to drink half the keg last night, so I guess it's okay. Got pretty hammered on it too. Thanks guys.

I used Indian Summer Apple Cider. I tried adding a half tsp of malic acid per gallon with no immediate effect. I threw the keg into the refrigerator until I can figure this out. Does Malic acid...

LOL. Yeah, "hairy" is the only way I can describe it. The only other time I have experienced this kind of taste was the finish on a shot of Johnny Walker Blue. Just . . . hairy.

Pectic enzyme during primary?

Okay, my cider has fermented down near the SG that I want. I'm going to halt fermentation by pastuerizing so I added the directed amount of pectic enzyme which resulted in a foam volcano. Yes, yes...

I'm a little confused about oxidation. It seems to me any exposure to the atmosphere will produce oxidation; isn't that why cider tends to have a tannish/brownish color anyway? Or is this another...
