Here in Alaska we call that "Whatchagot Stew" and it's led to some incredibly tasty, if highly unorthodox dinners (seafood chili anyone?).

Drinking my cider now... Sooo yummy.. I decided not to let it go and try some tonight final gravity was 1.015 at 60 degrees. This is not a session cider.. It went from sweet to just right. I was surprised. As for using Stout Ale yeast from the Stout I racked, I can't taste any off flavors of signs of the Ale. (*I was hoping to pick up some kind of taste from it). One pint down an I I will make more of this when ever I can. For the cost of about 3 bucks it is well worth it. This is one of those that you set and forget...for about two weeks then rack off to a new jug. I now have two one gallon jugs of apple juice that is going strong. With these I used Nottingham yeast that I had. I think that these will come out much better.

Crispin has been fermenting cider with stout, Belgian, sake and other strains for a while now...

Holy smokes - this is one turbo fermentation. It bubbled furiously for 24 hours and is now down to bubbling every 10-15 seconds or so. I suspect I've overshot my window to keep it sweet so it looks like it's going to have to go the distance.

Full and hungry yeast culture... need I say more? There are quite a few posts about dumping onto old ale trub. Just none recently.

Not yet. I plan to do so when I get home from work tonight.

CthulhuDreaming, you made my day. I love to see when other people post their crazy experiments! My cider experiement (albeit much less exciting) was spur of the moment and in reverse. Plans came up and I couldn't fit in a full brew day so while at the store buying supplies, I picked up store bought apple juice and a ton of raw sugar / brown sugar to make my California Ale yeast (high attenuation) happy. Threw a 6 gal batch together in like 20 minutes.

Pulled it out last week. ~9%. 6 Gal. 30 min. $25 set and forget brew ... and all the brown sugar gives a nice molasses taste. Reused the yeasties on my Barleywine (and surprisingly they still seem to be happy in that 1.1 SG monstrosity).

Anyway, great post!
