    Cyser question

    Well, I finally got a look at the cyser that's been sitting for some time. It appears to have some mold growing on the surface. I suppose that means it's a dumper?

    Cyser question

    Sounds good. I'll probably dilute/ back sweeten with apple juice afterwards to try and make it more sessionable

    Cyser question

    So I have made a cyser before. Its been over a year and still in the primary. LOL. I'm scared to pull it out and taste it as temp was not managed. I decided to try again. I have 4 gallons of apple juice (Costco brand) and about 15# of honey. From my reading here (it's been awhile since I brewed...

    Commercial Kegerator - build it for less?

    Saw this at my local Costco for $1200. I figure we can come up with something better for less. Let's see a list of parts and cost. ☺️

    Maybe cold crash if you want clear cider. If cloudiness doesn't bother you, don't worry about it.

    Lacto-fermented cyser

    No, just trying to stop it from getting worse. I think i saw pellicle on the top and it tastes slightly sour, like a berlinerweisse beer.

    Is my fermentation chamber still good to use?

    MaryB -- I had opened it to taste before I cold-crashed. I was letting it bulk age. MadScientist -- I was using straight juice. I will taste, but I'm pretty sure I saw some pellicle on top of the melomel. Augie... Didn't think of that. Just figured I have three BMBs, so why not just toss the...

    Lacto-fermented cyser

    So, I didn't intend to do this, but apparently I infected my melomel when I was cold crashing it. Is there any way to stop the lacto/pedio from getting any worse? It isn't too bad now, just slightly sour, but I wouldn't want it to get any worse!
