I'm new to homebrewing, just started my third batch - five one gallon carboys using a Youngs Brew Buddy Cider kit.
Instead of using the yeast and yeast nutrient that comes in the kit, i have used some Vin Classe wine yeast i got a few months back before i found the youngs kits in my local Wilkinsons store.
Ive pitched my yeast and yeast nutrient and am using a blow of tube set up from all five carboys as I've found this yeast to be very active for the initial fermentation period.
I would like to add a different flavour to my cider as the previous batch i made tasted like a Sainsburys Basics cider ( which was pleasant enough but not what im after this time ). Ive read on a few other forums that i could add fruit puree so i have purchased some raspberry puree.
my question is how much do i need to add to each carboy to give a nice raspberry taste and aroma?
Also should i add during primary or at bottling?
previously i have racked straight from primary to the bottling bucket and then carbed and aged in the bottles, i dont want to add the puree at bottling and in turn make a load of bombs!?!
Im taking this batch with me to this years Reading Music festival
and don't want them exploding in my car.
Sorry if this question has been posted before, i couldnt find the answer i needed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
