Usually use tree top, but which walmart juice would be better? No sugar added or regular? One has maltodextrin.

The maltodextrin may throw off your FG, since it's unfermentable (correct me if I'm wrong). I haven't looked too much into the ingredients, but I've been using mostly Old Orchard juices for my ciders, and the juice blend (cran-apple, apple blueberry pomegranate) have all finished at at 1.008 down from 1.07 (by simple sugar addition), and I'm guessing it's from maltodextrin or some other sort of unfermentable sweetener.

Thats 0.56-3.78oz priming sugar for a 5gal batch. Personally I'd prefer the be on the upper end of that range, or even a little higher wouldn't be bad in my opinion.

I would have expected lower. I ferment under pressure & carb naturally. I'm thinking about giving this a try.

I was going to use wine tannins instead of the english tea; thoughts on dosage for a 5 gallon batch?

Reason: I'm a boner, saw that WLP775 is good for this.

Hey all. Just made a five gallon batch. Here are a few pics of the brew. Hoping the residual foam from the starsan won't hurt it as I've read, "don't fear the foam" many times on these forums. A little bit of lime pulp got in there too. I will keep you posted.
