Sounds like what I've got. What yeast did you use? (Nottingham here).

[QUOTEEd, could you post a pic of that apple juice you use. I went to costco and all I could find was Mott's. ][/QUOTE]


And here is the Nottingham batch. There's not much room left on the top!

You got a lot more krausen (or whatever you'd call it with apple juice) than I. Probably the nottingham I guess.

Thanks, I wonder why ours does not carry it. Can I ask how much it is a gallon at yours? Mott's has asorbic acid which is a preservative right??

I can not remeber what I paid for the two packs, I think like $5.89 would sound about right. Try to call the other cosco's and see if they carry it.

I was starting to get a little woried but it has satyed where it is for the past two days. There was no Krausen(or whatever) until about three days ago. The Sulfer smell has subsided too. Thankfully! I have another 5gal batch with the wine yeast in the closet. That has some sulfer smell and no Krausen. It should be interesting to see how they compare when done.

Will ascorbic acid prevent the yeast from growing? Every type of apple juice I've found contains it.

Alright, I found a couple posts that say this will not hurt, can anyone confirm for me before I go buy it?

I know that you want to avoid preservatives, those will kill the yeast. I would try to find some that is pastuerized, then you will know for sure that you are safe.

I hope that helps some.
