I noticed there is a big difference when you pull off a sample. It looks less clear in the carboy then in a glass.

RichBrewer - You can say that again twice!! Mine is at 6 weeks and I'm still getting bubble activity, at least 6-8 per minute. No clearing yet. I have been averaging about 55'F. This weekend warmed things up enough to get to a balmy 57'F.

This hobby teaches patience to say the least.

Okay Ed...just when I was looking for a light ABV to brew to counter my 6.5% Porter I just tapped...I come across this monster thread. You've created a monster.

Question, will I get the same apple flavor with a lower ABV% by using the following:

1lb of Brown sugar in place of the 2lbs of Corn Sugar
London Ale Yeast instead of the wine yeast.

I guess I'd like to lean towards more of a cider since my SWMBO hasn't met a brew of mine she likes yet...and one or two (dare I utter the words) Miller Lites put her slightly over the edge.

She loves Hard Cider...

I would recommend using only apple juice and the Montrachet wine yeast. It will finish out between 5 & 6% using only juice and yeast. I can't comment on using Ale yeast as I only use Montrachet. It's pretty cheap at 79 cents a packet.

It will still ferment out dry, so have SWMBO drink 3 glasses before judgment.

I'm jumping on the bandwagon, I'm going to make this soon--to hopefully be ready by May for when SWMBO returns from the desert. It will be a small token of a gift to her that I am glad she is finally home. And I can get her drunk and take advantage of her.

SO...without going through all 197 pages of this thread--is there any other apple juice that will work? I don't "belong" to Costco.
