    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. :)

    My first batch of Ed Worts Apfelwein!

    So today my new 14 gallon fermenter arrived, so I figured what better way to break it in than with a 10 gallon batch of Apfelwein! I've never brewed before or made this, this is my first run. It looks like my beginning gravity it 1.065, so hopefully this batch turns out awesome. I plan to...
