i just recently picked up a mexican 5-gal glass carboy for $7.50 and I am excited to finally get started brewing something!
i figured i would start out with a hard cider of some sort since cool weather is just around the corner...
i was just looking for some guidance into this foray...
i was going to use 5 gals of unfiltered natural apple juice along with a lb of dark brown sugar and ale yeast... i believe it needs to ferment for around a month or so before even thinking about bottling it
what i was wondering was if i could bottle straight out of the primary? after the yeast has finished eating up all the original sugar i could add some extra AJ or brown sugar, mix it up in the carboy, and then rack to bottles... does this sound like a viable option?
if this is impossible, please correct me
