It's basically a cider that has the abv boosted with adjuncts. Therefore, New England Cider. Google it.

Transferring your hooch from one vessel to another in order to get it off the lees (spent yeast that settles to the bottom).

The yeast is pretty hardy, you can certainly get a high ABV, with all that fermentable sugar it would keep ya at home. Huh.
I might like to try the recipe in late winter to try and get a nice spiced apple for next fall, although I might add some bentonite at the start and fine it with sparkeloid. After the second racking, bulk age for 3 months and see if it needs a little backsweeting, might add a conditioner and bottle after about another month. I dunno whaddya think.

You don't need bentonite or sparkelloid- it'll clear just fine without them. I'm not a fan of sweet wines, but if you like sweet wines apple wine is a nice one to sweeten.

Default No bubbles in secondary


I racked this 9 days after leaving it in the primary bucket (April 7th). It is now the 20th and I have not seen one bubble in the secondary since racking. Is it actually done fermenting (for the most part) and just clearing now? Seems strange.

Could be. What was your starting gravity and what is it now?
