So last time I made this was about 6 months ago when I didn't know as much about Final Gravities...

Now I'm looking at it and thinking that .012 is about 23-25% of the total sugars. And my 12oz of molasses was also about 23-25% of the total sugars.

So either my yeast pooped out early or the molasses didn't really ferment much. Hmmmm...

How much of the darkened honey do you use in your caramel apple cider?

put together another batch of this, but did the "mild flavor" molasses instead of the "full flavor". Also put the tea leaves into the fermenter. We'll see how it changes the flavor.
