This looks great!
How's the flavor? Do you get a lot of cherry/Pom?

How much do you suggest for priming sugar for bottling?

Did you take a SG and FG?

Thanks again. Hope to start this soon

The cherry Pom is the dominant flavor in this for sure. I never took a sg or fg on this but if I were to hazard a guess I would say sg around 1.080 and fg (before back sweetening) completely dry.

I have never bottled this so I am not sure how much sugar to add but you can search on these forums for that...I think the usual is around a cup and a quarter for a 5gallon batch but don't quote me on that

so basically apfelwien back sweetened with cherry pom? hmmm this is actually temping.

I got a carboy going of apflewien right now. while the idea of bottle pasturizing 50 bottles doesn't sound well "fun" maybe i'll do a a 1/3 cherry pom or maybe even blueberry pom.

also looking at the recipe its a 1/2 lb less sugar than apflewien, so my guess is its 7.5%ish strength

So I took a SG @1.059, transfered to secondary to help clear as my keg system is not set up yet, keep finding to many projects to do, took a gravity reading @ transfer and I am @ 1.00.

I am new to home brewing. You mentioned Sorbate, is that the same as Potassium Sorbate? For Sulfite, are you able to use campden tablets.

Yes. Potassium sorbate is commonly referred to as sorbate, and campden tablets are the most common type of sulfite.

Where are you finding your concentrate? I'm in San Diego and haven't found it at the stores by my house. This is my last ingredient before getting started

You should be able to find it in any local grocery store. Out here Kroger stores carry it, but I would think that Safeway, Ralphs, or Stater Bros should carry it in the frozen juice isle. Been a while since I lived in California not sure what stores are out there.
