I've got batch #2 goin' right now. 4 gal of juice & 4 cans of concentrate. No corn sugar. I used the same Cote Des Blancs Yeast. BTW - The yeast maker says to use nutrients or energizer with this particular strain.

I'm expecting it to be sweeter fruitier than batch #1.

This weekend I'm splitin' it up on the way to the secondary. Half will get 2 cans or oregon raspberry and the other half with 2 cans oregon strawberry. I haven't decided whether to top off with more juice.

The smell today is super appley.

Here you go bird, here's my cider's not "much of a krausen, if any" for ya:




This was with ale yeast, but you get the idea.

My ( 2 gallons of re-constituted apple concentrate, 1 pound of dextrose, and 1/2 gallon maple syrup) has had a small amount of foam on, for the last 12 days. Not quite 3 inches of krausen, but I have never seen a beer krausen last this long.

Oh, Nottingham yeast.
