    getting the apples out of the carboy was definiley tough. After racking to secondary, the apples were quite a mess. It took alot of shaking and washing to get everything out of there...but the beer tastes delicious

    Refridgeration of Beer after Conditioning

    I am thinkking the same thing. My "5-gallon" secondary definilty has some head space where could probably fit the beer and I am positive that this beer is going to need to do some clearing/settling out. Time to start thinking about the next brew :ban:

    JTK, did you end up moving to secondary then? I ended up just adding the cider to primary, as you had done, as i only had a 5 gallon for secondary. Glad I did not too since adding the cider brings it up to 5.5 and another round of Krausen has sprung up higher. Is secondary still needed...

    Are you guys all adding 2 lbs of honey? and 5lbs of apples? i was thinking the "#" meant units. So 5 apples and 2 containers of honey...

    So what's up with the different OG's....I cam out with a 1.055, OP had 1.069 and jkratzer came out with a 1.042. Still a relatively new homebrewer, can anyone explain this difference? I was under the impression that with an extract brew that the OG would not vary too much. Of course i guess...

    Brewed this guy yesterday with your extra tips, fermentation took off within a couple hours and the house smelled amazing. One questions though... My OG reading came out around 1.055 which seems much lower than the 1.069 you stated. The juice hasn't been added yet, but you did mention your...
