a) 4.5 gallons of all natural pressed Apple Juice (ala Trader Joes)
b) .5 gallons Cherry Juice (ala Trader Joes)
c) .5 gallons Distilled Water (ala Home Water Filter)
d) ahh crap what is missing, doh the freakin; 1 Lbs Dextrose or Brown Sugar

Time in to the Keg was March 27th 2008 @ 7:00PM PST
Time in Keg at this post is 22hr est. (slight activity out of the blow off tube)
SG is 1042
FG is (TBD)

I guess I will just have to wait and see, to bad I for got to add the Sugar as recommended....DOH! o-well learning is a process I guess.
Well it has not even been 24 hours yet you can still boil the sugar cool and dump it in. It will not hurt a thing or you can take the alternate route and leave it what you have. It ferments out from anywhere between 1.000 to .995 its up to you either way it will taste good.

So today this thing has finally slowed down from a bubble in the bottle every 2 or 3 mins to now only about 10 mins. So I will run the gravity on it and let everyone know. The SG = 1042 so I am hoping for a FG around what you stated.

thanks and I will let ya know when I keg it tomorrow.

wonder how 2 or 3 gal of cherry juice would work?? You should get some taste out of it then?? Thinking the cherry juice would sweeten it up a little also?

OK so looking at my notes this is what i have listed, I orginally was wrong with 1042.

SG = 1044
FG = 1006
ABV = 4.99%

Not to bad, it's ready to drink right now, need some bubbles. but the wives like it. Next time it will have a much higher SG and I will add more Cherry Juice. It's very light in color.

But taste good.

Many thanks for the advice and recipe.

If you want to get the cherry flavor, skip the cherry juice and rack onto about 1-1.5# cherries per gallon in the secondary and let it go for about 2 weeks. You'll lose some liquid when you rack, but to me it's worth it. I use sour cherries and back sweeten a little (or a lot for my wife) when I do my cherry wheat beer, but that's just me
