Id just watch it for infection or oxidation, your co2 levels might be high enough I don't know w/o looking at it. Id venture to say your fine though if you properly sanitized.

I dunno. If you have to unlock the carboy for whatever reason, you might consider pouring it all into a smaller one with little headspace. But if you leave your airlock on from pitching your yeast until you bottle, I don't see a need to worry, since no air should be getting in.

I'm going to give this a go for the first time today. The guy at the brew store was a bit skeptical about using bread yeast. Ahh well..

Being a kiwi I'm going to try one that uses chinese gooseberries in it instead of oranges :P

The guys at my HBS were the same way until they tasted it. Go for it, it's fun and easy.

Took a sample after a month and some change in the fermentor... It appears that my bread yeast crapped out at 1.045. Doing to pick up some D-47 from the store on Friday and see if that will finish it off.

Just for clarification .045 after 5 weeks.with no activity is.way too high right? Would repitching be advisable at this point?

Just bottled 5 gallons, I made this one without the orange pith and it was 10x better than with the pith. There is no bitterness.

At one month, didn't add the extra water though. Was a little clearer when I took it out but one of my hands twitched while setting it down

Hey guys, I started a batch of this just over 3 months ago, but it still looks kinda cloudy:



(JAOM on the right, batch of apfelwein started at the same time on the left)

What's the recommended course of action here? Leave it in the carboy until it clears (though I need to bottle it within a month since I'm moving out) or just bottle it now? It was fermenting at about 60F so I guess it might have been going pretty slowly. Thanks in advance!
