Yup I'm new! Anyways, I tried searching around for anyone that's made comment on it but couldn't find anything.

Will it bottle bomb?

My hopes are it'd work as a primer and possibly sweeten it some (and maybe cut the alchohol down, next batch will probably cut the corn sugar since I'm not a fan of ABV > 5%)


If it will result in bombs, also thinking of dumping another gallon in (used a 6.5g carboy and wasn't thinking when I only filled it to 5g) just don't like opening it up.



(....PS thanks HBT, I didn't try to fish the first sanitized stopper out thanks to you all...other posts convinced me I wouldn't need a hammer.)

doing some quick math, one gallon of apple juice added to 5 gallons of finished cider should result in a gravity jump of around 8.3 points (granded that standard apple juice is 1.050), assuming that the wine ended at 1.000 that would put the SG at 1.0083. IIRC, 2-3 points should be added in order to carbonate properly, so adding in a gallon would be too much and would risk bottle bombs. I'd think more of a 1/3 of a gallon would be about right for this, leaving you with some well carbonated cider.

YMMV. HAND.

Use 1/3 of a gallon if you want to prime 5 gallons of apfelwein with straight juice.

Using a full gallon will create apfelgrenades.

Just remember what scinerd said... the apple juice will be fermenting as well. This will work just fine if you're looking for carbonation in your bottles, but if you're also looking for more sweetness, you're going to need to get a non-fermentable sweetener such as lactose or even Splenda.

1. In a near ambush (within hand grenade range):
a. Depending on terrain, soldiers in the kill zone carry out one of the following two actions:
(1) SEE the enemy with AN/PVS-7B and return fire immediately using the AN/PAQ-4. If cover is not available, immediately, without order or signal, assume the prone position, and throw fragmentation, concussion, and smoke grenades.
(2) SEE the enemy with AN/PVS-7B and return fire immediately using the AN/PAQ-4. If cover is available, without order or signal, seek the nearest covered position, and throw concussion or fragmentation and smoke grenades.

b. Immediately after the grenades detonate, soldiers in the kill zone return fire and assault through the ambush position using fire and movement.

c. Soldiers not in the kill zone immediately:
(1) Identify enemy positions by looking through their AN/PVS-7B for muzzle flashes.
(2) Initiate accurate suppressive fires against the enemy. Leaders use AN/PAQ-4 and hand-held laser pointers to control fires and assign targets.
(3) Under the control of the squad leader, soldiers shift fires as the soldiers in the kill zone begin to assault through the ambush.

d. Soldiers in the kill zone continue the assault to eliminate the ambush or until contact is broken.

e. The platoon/squad conducts consolidation and reorganization.

2. In a far ambush (beyond hand grenade range):
a. Soldiers receiving fire immediately return fire, take up a covered position and suppress the enemy by:
(1) Destroying or suppressing enemy crew-served weapons. Squad lead use their hand-held laser pointer to designate the enemy's crew-served positions.
(2) Sustaining suppressive fires.

b. Soldiers/squads not receiving fires move by a covered and concealed route to a vulnerable flank of the enemy position and assault using fire and movement techniques.

c. Soldiers in the kill zone continue suppressive fires. Leaders continue to identify the engagement area by using hand-held laser pointers, and ground illumination flares. The team or squad leader in the kill zone identifies the flank elements and leaders of the assaulting force get within the minimum safe distance of the surface danger area. The squad leader orders his squad to shift fires as the assaulting squad fights through the enemy position.

...I smell sarcasm, with a possible answer of "yes." Perhaps I should pop some grolsch caps to ease pressure...
