No need to add bottling yeast unless it has been aging a loooong time.

I've never used that brand of bottle but had had no problems with bottles that size or with ones bigger/smaller for that matter.

I use a half pint sake bottle all the time with no problems. It is great for getting the last drop from the bottling bucket and I don't feel so bad when I open one early to "test" the batch.

Let's see, a Mr. Beer is designed for 2 gallon batches I believe. So 40% of the ingredients would be.

2 Gallons 100% Apple Juice (No preservatives or additives)
0.8 pounds of dextrose (corn sugar)
2 grams of Montrachet Wine Yeast

I would just use about 1/2 a packet of Montrachet Wine Yeast. That's only 2.5 grams and is no where near over pitching. Then tape the packet shut and stick it in the fridge/freezer for later use.

I would also probably just add an entire 1lb bag of corn sugar. The result will be a bit stronger, but in 2 gallons of liquid you aren't going that high. Should be about 1.073, depending on the juices OG before the sugar addition.

Happy brewing.

I have been through quite a few of the pages and searched and I seem to be finding two different theories.

Can someone chime in again.

Do I need to take this off the yeast ever or can I go 6 months on the yeast cake?

If I need to take it off how long should I leave it on?

I bottle if that makes a difference.

Thanks

You can go 6 months if you like,if you transfer to secondary wait until it clears first.It really does not matter if you get it off the yeast or not,mainly preference.

I'm getting ready to make a batch of this with the original recipe. Has anybody done this with grapefruit juice? SWMBO loves grapefruit crushes. Just thinking it may be a "win" for me to make a grapefruit concoction. Thinking of getting a one gallon jug and experimenting. Any thoughts?
