Hi everyone. Clearly a noob though have an important question.
Will my cider explode? Haha
For Xmas I received a mr beer premium brewing kit. However I like cider and heard it is easier to make. I researched as much as possible and probably should have asked this before I started however was excited and just went with it.
My process: I sanitized the keg and everything involved. Filled the '2 gallon' Mr Beer keg with 8L of store bought apple juice (Approx 2.1 gallons which doesn't make sense though it was to the same level of liquid used for making beer (as per me beer instructions). And I used no added sugar, preservatives, flavours or colors 99.9% reconstituted apple juice.
So. Should I have put less juice in or maybe topped it up to 2gallon point with water? Has cider got higher sugar therefore more gas when fermenting?
If so can I just empty some out via the tap on the keg?
I am new and don't want to make the first experience a negative one.
