    Creating a sweet without pasteurisation?

    Thanks Maylar, I'll try to grab some today, the bubbling has stopped and it's bottomed out at 1, I'll drop the temp a bit and try to clarity for a few days then rack and look into adding some brown suger and Xylitol for a sweet carb, maybe add some black tea?

    Apple schnapps into the mix?

    I guess I'm only going on what the majority of articles say, that adding extra flavour / extract helps prior to bottling. It's my first time working from scratch. :)

    Creating a sweet without pasteurisation?

    Hi all, I mainly stick to off the shelf cider, and they normally come with a satual of "something" that you add to make it sweet on bottling. What is this? I'd like to get some to add to a batch I have on the go at the moment made from scratch, I'm not sure I want to go down the stove top...

    Hi, I think I've done my calcs correctly, 23L is about 6Gal, and most people say to use 1/2 Lb or 250grams of lactose. This is approx 0.015 / 6 or 0.0025, which I add to the final FG of 1.007 for the brew I'm creating (Pear + Strawberry). Should I place it in during fermentation, of after...

    Can I reduce Yeast for non-alcoholic?

    Yep, that all sounds logical, I might try with an alcoholic one to start with, maybe add some lactose prior to bottling with the primer. It seems 200-250grams is about the norm for 23L.

    Can I reduce Yeast for non-alcoholic?

    Hi All, I've made a few ginger beers from off the shelf style products, and I'm wondering if I can reduce the yeast? Ideally I would like to make a sweeter cider, adding say 300gm sugar to the mix before bottling, but only have 150gm of that carbonate etc, the remainder stay un-fermented...
