In my experience most wines will be clear at the 3-4 month mark. I like to let my wines bulk age in the carboy for around 5 months or more before bottling and they are normally crystal clear by then.

Cranberry Apple Hard Cider

This recipe I got from a buddy who loves it and highly recommended it. I can't take credit for it. If you have a kegerator, this is the easy and delicious recipe for you. This could also be bottled...

I just tasted my finished batch of hard cider with nottingham ale yeast. VERY happy with the result. Plus, it was crystal clear in about 5 weeks. Great flocculation with this yeast for me.

Very good point. Didn't think about that!



Excellent idea! I'm probably worrying too much about it. But I might do this just out of curiosity. Thanks!

Easy clean i just a sanitizer, not a cleaner. Try out some PBW cleaner. Soak it, rinse it, then sanitize it.

How long are you letting it sit in the primary before racking to secondary or bottling?...

Dumb question - Campden Tablets..

So this past weekend, I racked my 5 gal batch of cider into my keg on top of poorly crushed campden tablets and potassium sorbate, in order to backsweeten it before I hook it up to CO2.

Hmmm... I wonder if even a serving pressure of 1-2psi of CO2 would be noticable in the wine? Makes sense the the CO2 would eventually get absorbed into the wine, even if it's just a tiny bit. I...

From all that i've read, still wine in kegs does not "require" nitrogen. CO2 is an inert gas and suitable for wine kegging. If you think about it, CO2 is what's given off by the wine during...

Never thought about that. I'll probably rock the keg here and there to try and keep that good stuff floating around.

I didn't bother with a cleaning kit, even though it may have been handy. I was just being cheap. I bought the 5# tank and I understand that it outta last a number of 5 gallon kegs before a refill.

My assumption is that IF it held pressure enough to carb up, I can't imagine the beer would pour without a ton a foam.
