Ive heard of ppl overcoming that with more yeast but its kind od a crapshoot. The reason you had some krausen is sorbate doesnt kill yeat it stops them from multiplying

Hey,

It looks quite interesting but can you please name the recipe and time taken to complete the recipe.

I threw together a quick batch of a 1/2 gal of mott's apple juice and a packet of yeast...we'll see where this goes. I'm not going to drink 5 gallons of unfermented cider, brown sugar, apple juice concentrate and yeast - so it's worth a shot in the dark

I called it "Apple-soused" and start to when I started drinking it was about 30-45 days.

Update: after 2 more weeks it's down to a little over 1.03. Seems to have made some progress in fermenting. I transferred it to a carboy and I'm thinking I'll pitch a packet of champagne yeast on top of it Saturday if there is no more movement - it's too sweet to drink right now.

Next time - no cider with potassium sorbate.

Has anyone tried adding bourbon and oak cubes? May do this (original recipe) and add some Buffalo Trace during secondary and an oak spiral.
