    Apple cyser

    I fortunately cant add the raisins at all now. I left for vacation the next day for a week. The morning we left the airlock was already going nuts. I'm going to rack onto a few Granny Smiths when I get home. I will definitely let you know how it turns out.

    Apple cyser

    I just made this tonight. I didn't put any raisins in it though. I forgot to get some at the store and I was already making the cyser when I realized it. Is it a big deal not having the raisins? Can I add them in the morning? Or can I add them when I rack this onto the apples? Thx.

    Your right. Math was alittle off last night. 31 months is a long time.

    Finally!

    Bulk age was almost 19 months. I was going to do a year in bottle but I dont know if it'll last that long. I'm going to try and keep at least one or two bottles to see what it's like in a year. That would be almost 21 months total time.

    Finally!

    Nope. I combined Orange Honey and Wildflower Honey to make 9 pounds. And used 3 or 4 pounds brown sugar. Kept it pretty traditional. It turned out way better than I thought. I'm going to venture into other meads now.

    Finally!

    I started my traditional Honey Mead on 2-26-12. I bottled it today after I sorbated it and sweetened it last month. It is absolutely phenomenal. I might just switch to brewing meads now. It finished at 16.36% ABV.

    Hard Root Beer recipe

    I just made this tonight. Its already going nuts. I used the 1 gallon recipe but I made it in a 5 gallon bucket. Do you think its safe in a 5 gallon bucket or should I still use a blow off tube?

    Hard Root Beer recipe

    I might bottle in easy cap bottles for a week or so then fridge em. Not crazy about plastic bottles. I might even try smaller champagne bottles. Let us know if a week is good for carbing.

    Hard Root Beer recipe

    That's awesome. I'm going to make this this weekend. Just picked everything up at LHBS. You dont think thats too much sugar at bottling do you? Wont to much sugar cause a high enough carbonation to cause bottle bombs? Maybe not, just curious.

Here is some of my info that I have from my batch: 2-26-2012 SG [email protected] degrees 31 Brix 2-28-2012 SG [email protected] degrees...
