    2 14g fermenters for $100

    I was a member here for a little bit but quit drinking due to health issues. I bought these from EC Kraus wine making supplies with the spigots/air locks already installed. i didnt buy them both at the same time so I didnt get the discount for buying 2 at the same time, I paid around $65 a piece...

    Does pitching yeast in rootbeer make alcohol?

    Im wondering if using an ale yeast to carb a root beer will create an alcohol content. It seems to me like it would have to, am I wrong? I want a 100% alcohol free soda, so would force carbing be the only way to acheive that? Thanks for any help.

    My first batch of Ed Worts Apfelwein!

    I guess I should point out this isn't the traditional apfelwein in Ed Worts post, as I didn't use the montrachet yeast, I used coopers ale yeast.

    My first batch of Ed Worts Apfelwein!

    So I just spent 3 hours bottling my cider. Looks like my final gravity was .996, my beginning gravity was 1.065, I'm trying to figure out how to calculate ABV :D This batch was huge, it did 56 - 12 ounce bottles, 4 - 2 liter bottles, 3 bombers, 4 - 1 liter bottles, and a few others. :D The...

    My first batch of Ed Worts Apfelwein!

    This question might have been answered somewhere else, but I cant find it. I'm almost ready to bottle my cider, and I want to carb it. Ive seen people say 1oz of corn sugar per gallon dissolved into water then added to the bottling bucket. The only thing is I have my cider in a fermenter which...

    My first batch of Ed Worts Apfelwein!

    So its about 5 weeks later and I took a sample. The gravity is around 1.003 or so. The taste is kind of sweet and apple flavored and you can really taste the alcohol in it. Its delicious right now. I might give it another 2 or 3 weeks then bottle. I used coopers ale yeast in this batch, so that...

    My first batch of Ed Worts Apfelwein!

    So, 2 days later and still no bubbling in the airlock. A buddy told me this could be because I only filled the tank with 10 gallons of liquid, and there is an extra 4 gallons of headspace thats empty, so hopefully it will start goin soon.

    My first batch of Ed Worts Apfelwein!

    haha, its not a dog food container, its a 14 gallon Tuff-Tank beer/wine fermenter. Some kibble and bits might be a nice dry hop selection though. :)
