yes, 2-4 weeks before transplanting. Thinking about some little pots that can travel. Or ziplock, and cooler with wet paper towel

My experience has led me to believe you have to really try hard to get an under-attenuated cider. All of mine have finished out at or below 1.000. I decided to ferment this one cooler to see if...

Thanks...I knew it was on the cool side. It took off and is VERY active. After 24+ hours of active fermentation, I added 1# of Clear Belgian Candy Sugar Syrup to bump the gravity to 1.052. My...

55F and ~48 hour lag before fermentation really got going. Next time I think I'll step the yeast up in 1L of cider before I pitch.

With an OG of 1.046, anyone have any opinion on adding sugar? ...

You'll have no problems. Odds are you will still slightly under-pitch, but I've never had any issues on 2-6 gallon batches of cider with one vial of WLP775.

Thanks AJ, I added 2 g and checked the pH a couple times. It stayed at 5.2 so I took a chance and added 2 more grams and after 15 min it was 5.4. My mash was a constant recirc. The final runnings...

AJ - if you are still following this thread, do you think the small amount of CaCO3 added to my mash is likely to have any detrimental effects? I was just curious. Thanks.

Went to bed last night with my freezer set up to ferment at 67F (freezer set to hold 51, warmers on carboys set to 67 from thermowell).

Somehow the carboys got down to 60F. I pitched Sat night. ...

Current gravity is 1.010, and 7.1%. I decided to blow off adding sugar. It'll dry out a little further. I chose liquid candi sugar because it was an easy way to add it

G'day all,

I brewed an IPA 8-days ago, and undershot my target gravity of 1.068 by 5 points (it was an obvious volume issue I should have caught and just boiled longer).

I pitched WLP090 and...
