I started a batch of apple/cherry concentrate the other night. I used 2 lbs to equal 1 gallon. Tonight, before pitch the yeast, I added another lb. I set my jug in the sink and funneled it in, letting extra volume spill over. Took another reading. OG is now 1.5 which equals 18% on the potential alc. scale.
Hopefully it won't stall. I'm using EC-1118, so it should handle it, and is good for re starting stalled ferments. I suppose I should add a little more nutrient after it bubbles for a few days?
