Just finished bottling this today. Brewed Tues night, bottled Fri morning (3 full days). No gravity readings. Went thru a full krausen, then dropped. Eventually turned into a sticky looming krausen, which I just racked under.

My bottles carbed up immediately, like 1.5 hours. Used plastic bottle tester. Put into dishwasher at 1.5 hours since cycle lasts 1/2 hour & dont want bombs, therefore figured I get a full 2 hours carb.

Sample was great! Thanks for recipe

Brewed this up today, 2 gallons, tossed the cider on a yeast cake of Wyeast 1010. I read a little about other folks using wheat yeast for cider though and I had just racked a wheat ale out of my Mr. Beer fermenter (makes a great "test batch" vessel) so it only made sense to make use of the yeasties with the rest of the ingredients that I already had on hand. I accidentally went over on the brown sugar and put 3/4c in the 2 gallon batch, so I hit a higher OG at 1.085. As long as I don't lose track of it, I am going to set my target FG at 1.040-1.045. Thanks for the recipe!

Will cider foam as it ferments? I did one and its going like crazy but I thought it blow the airlock right off but it hasn't. Not that I want it to but you know it a good sign it getting wild.

I got very little foam on mine, certainly nothing that would necessitate the use of a blowoff tube. Using the Wyeast 1010 I did notice a little bit of a sulfur smell when I opened the first carbonated bottle, but that is just a trait of the yeast from what I have read. The still cider had no noticeable sulfur smell.

Yea I do not think I'll need a blow off. It's been going pretty good for the past 48 hours. It's going to have to sit in primary for about a month do to a work trip. I can't wait to get back and bottle it. Every time I walk into the room you can smell it. You can even hear it bubbling. It's kind of neat. Yon know what I'm talking about.

Just remember, If you let this ferment out you WILL have to backsweeten with more cider. It'll be extremely dry with the OG. If you do backsweeten, just bottle right after you do, and you are right back on track.

Also I find that this site's search function doesn't work well, but you can search HBT direct from google and get much better results. Just type "site:homebrewtalk.com" (without the quotes) into the google, followed by whatever terms you want to use (in this case "bottle pasteurization"). Used that method to find the thread linked above.
