Oldmate....do you remember how long you let it sit in primary? Im going on 6 weeks on the 30th. Im still seeing airlock activity, althought it every 30-40 sec's.

I brewed this a while back and left some with my girlfriend. She loves it but called me after one glass of it and she was decidedly tipsy. She was very happy because of the alcohol and very unhappy because she has to get up in the morning and I didn't warn her this stuff is very alcoholic.

Judging by the effect this has had on me I would say it is upwards of 10% abv. Drink it out of a wine glass, not a pint glass.

On the whole it is fantastic.

Just started a batch of this (3 Gal.) and used a Windsor yeast. Its a beer yeast and after 30 min it is off and running. Carmalized 4 cups of Sugar in the Raw with 2 cups of brown sugar. Should be interesting to see how this progresses. Thanks for posting the recipe...

Well..just started a batch of this. I also added 1/4c brown sugar into my apple juice prior to mixing the caramelized sugars+juice into the carboy. Just for a little added ABV. Pitched yeast at 1.086 SG and using Montrachet yeast.
Cant wait for it to be finished. If it tastes as well as every1 says, Ill make a ton more in the upcoming months

If I accidentally prepped my dry yeast with cold water will it ruin mess it up for fermentation?

I dont think it will mess it up. Just might take a little bit of time to get started.
Just think, normally the yeast is stored in a fridge, so it will just need to get down to room temp and then it should begin. might take a day or two to get going

just took a quick reading to see where I was at after 2 days and its already at 4% with very steady activity...of course I needed to taste-test the sample...and then again when the wife came home (for no other reason than it was really good)...think this is going to be a winner! Thanks again Oldmate for posting this.

So I finally bottled this and my wife and friends love it! I'm debating on back sweetening my spiced cider.
