Guys tastes great so far after one week fermenting is finished and I got an fg of 1.008 which i think is okay.
Tastes dry and smooth woth the right level of bitterness. Got the ibu to 30.
7.09% as added 450g of sugar to wort.
Havent dry hopped yet. Might go for it as nothing to lose and...
I made a cider with Aldi apple juice. No sugar added
The gravity is close to 1 and stable over the last few days.
I read on line you should leave in secondary for 4 weeks but i have did 1 week prinary 1 week secondary and its crystal clear and tasted good.
Iv done 2 batches of biab and bottling is great but my bittle neck as i only have about 40. I was thinkinv about investing in maybe 5 mini kegs as theyre pretty cheap and will let my break up my batch into bulk and bottles.
I know there are two types
Gravity poor ones like in the shops...
I have one of those plastic kegs with the co2 valves on top.
My question may seem stupid but do the co2 canisters carbonate the beer or just help it to poor?
If so do you still need to add priming sugar?
Hi all just tried my juice made cider.
6.34% abv from the sugar im the juice
Leaving another week to cehck the gravity but wuen i bottle just wandering if i should carbonate like beer? I used carbonation drops typically 2 per pint gives good carbonation.
I dont mond dry cider and my taste...
Final comment from me
Going with about 4 oz of saaz. Read a lit that this nit so bitter hop is better to allow the funk to shine through...
2oz for 60 mins
1oz for 30 mins
1oz for 7 days dry hopping
Any final thoughts really appreciated
Original for hops / timings all 12% sorachi ace
14g 30 mins
56g 0 mins
84g 5-7 days
Mash - i dont think i can achieve all of these steps...
Mash 50c for 10 mins
63c for 60 mins
67c for 15 mins
Mash out at 75c
Add 1lb corn sugar
Hope this helps
So the recipe calls for 168g of 12% sorachi ace at various times etc during and after mash. So that means i would need 672g of 3% saaz to get similar intensity? That seems way too much? Any idea on a better level for a 20l batch?
Hi all thanks for the feedback.
I purchased the little saison yeast from the crossmyloof brewery.
Not sure if this is a well known brand but again i dont think experimenting is a bad thing.
Looking to make a Saison, 20l batch.
I have 5kg of pilsner malt. The recipe calls for sorachi ace hops but they are pretty expensive for the 200g i would need.
I have some saaz left over so i am debating if this would be a credible change to the recipe.
Also would it be worth adding...
