How much priming sugar would you add for bottling?

This does sound tasty!

Thanks!

Well, ya ain't gonna get a response outta cheesefood.....

To answer your question 3/4 of a cup of priming sugar should be fine. Let it condition for at least 3 weeks before drinking.

Is the fermentation heavy on this? Would it require a blow-off tube?

Do you need to heat this mixture to disolve the honey and syrup or do you just stir it to disolve?

The fermentation wasn't very heavy at all. I just stirred it like crazy to dissolve everything. Once I was able to lift my spatula and see that there wasn't much honey and maple syrup stuck to it, I called it good. This is gonna get bottled tonight...I can't wait to taste it!

A week ago I put in a 1.5 L test batch of this. I mixed it at a medium-low heat (no specific temp) to mix in the honey and Maple Syrup. Then I poured it into my test fermenter (The Nightmare Engine as I call it due to some of my tests) and pitched a pinch of Champaign dried yeast.

The NEXT DAY I had a nice thick foam on it. Some great smells coming from it too.

Now, a week later there are no surface bubbles, but the air lock is still popping out a bubble every minute or too. I think tonight I'm going to bottle for two weeks. Thoughts?

Also, anyone else here tried this recently?

I made an apfelwein batch simlar to this (sub honey for 2.5 lbs brown sugar w/cotes des blanc yeast) and 3 cups of pure maple syrup (2 for primary fermentation, 1 to backsweeten).

I'm interested to see how it turns out.

I somehow managed to get some solid sugars out of my last half gallon of pure maple syrup that i bought. Would anyone know if this would give a cider the same taste as using real syrup? The sugar tastes kinda like syrup but not much.

I am making a batch of this right now with a buddy. We are both big fans of maple. I ended up using just 2.3lbs of honey and the one quart of the maple sugar. We didn't want it too strong so we mixed it with about 2.5L of warm water to dissolve it all which helped to bring it down. I will let you know how it goes and post pics of fermentation if I remember and there is interest. OG was 1.080.
