    Old Orchard 100% White Grape Juice - May contain sulfites?

    OK, maybe I can ferment a half gallon and if it works, add the rest and away we go.

    Old Orchard 100% White Grape Juice - May contain sulfites?

    I read that this might be a preservative. It does say that it's been pasteurized. On the ingredients it does say "May contain sulfites." This juice is real cheap 50% off right now. You think I should buy some and try it out?

    Edwort... I think I screwed up the recipe

    Wow, OK. So I guess I had to wait for the beer to fully carbonate. Tastes great now. Weird smell gone, taste the hops. This beer took longer to be drinkable than I thought. Mmmmm............ Good stuff....... I have to try this recipe a few more times to understand all grain better...

    Edwort... I think I screwed up the recipe

    I know. lol. With brewing extract I got it down to a tee everytime. Even if I tasted it after a week and it tasted nasty I'd still kn ow it would turn out good. This is just my first all-grain. An d it stopping at 1.020 seems a little high. The yeasty smell with go away I hope.:tank:

    Edworts Hause Ale - fermented down to .1020

    Thats not so bad. I guess it will come out to around 4.5% while secondary. It needs to clear for a week or two before bottling.:cross:

    Edworts Hause Ale - fermented down to .1020

    cool, thanks. I think i'll leave it for 2 weeks in the secondary and then bottle it. Even if its 4% id still be happy. But it going down to 1.020 makes me think it might only come out to 3% ... Hmmm.

    Edworts Hause Ale - fermented down to .1020

    I assume this would be a super low alcohol beer. As it only went from 1.050 yo 1.020. Im not sure what the exact % would be. I'll keep posting in a week and I hope it goes down some. :cross:
