    Applekush Original Recipe

    You don't have to worry about it to much. I had 6days then 7days from the original date I started. Maybe do one the day after, then one the day you leave and then one when you get back. Do you have a hydrometer? It'll help you to get it to the level (sweeter= higher/dryer= lower) you want. I...

    Applekush Original Recipe

    I used dry Nottingham ale yeast from Danstar. Only done one batch still of cider so don't know what the wine ones taste like to compare but it tasted great to me with this one!

    You can use either juice/cider/concentrate juice. Add to the level of sweetness you like then keg or bottle. If you bottle make sure to heat the bottles by boil/dishwasher/etc sour doesn't ferment again. If you keg I'm guessing it'll be to cold to ferment.

    Applekush Original Recipe

    Not Sure what kind of apple juice/cider you started with but I didnt use the pectin. If your base wasnt real cloudy I wouldnt worry about it as it will clear from primary to secondary and then cold crash or keg cold. Mine turned out crystal clear. I stopped at 1.010 as I didn't want it to dry...

    Applekush Original Recipe

    Ok I just put this together. Couple questions. I got a SG 1.060. Shouldn't it be higher with the sugar? You used 6 gallons not 5? Just wanted to make sure cause my carboy is Damn full!

    wilserbrewer BIAB bags

    Hey Bob! I'm a new brewer myself and have only been brewing since Jan. The hobby quickly became a passion and then an addiction so I upgraded equipment rather fast. I first upgraded to the "North Brewer" ( specific names allowed for vendors on here?) kettle burner kit they had a special on...

    Cornelius Kegerator

    Finally got ahold of someone @ Fogel. The initial response was we refer people to Cornelius for those... Guy was nice though and took my info so if he found anything he could email it to me. The mystery continues on this kegerator.

    Will this make anything drinkable?

    Just wanted to give an update on this since I just popped the first bottle last night. Overall color good, head retention good, fragrance a little hopy and taste... Well it's not bad but it's not real good either. I think different hops would have complemented this much better. Then again this...

    Price of honey question

    Go to the source whenever possible. Got 12lbs raw Wildflower today from a local honey farm For $30. LHBS stocks his stuff and wanted $62 for the same size. Shop and dig around and you'll find better deals. Even got $5 off cause I belonged to a brew club so don't forget to tell them what your...

    Cornelius Kegerator

    So after finally getting ahold of someone who knew something at Cornelius USA they said it was actually made by Fogel USA and just rebadged as a Cornelius product. They said back around '05 they would sell like 12 a year of these so they stopped selling them. Naturally Fogel USA is already...
