Good afternoon all cider makers,

Does anyone know how many gravity points one can (12 oz) of Treetop fajc adds to 5 gallons of cider? Me and Math don't always see eye to eye. I could always do trial and error but I'm sure there is some first hand experience on this forum.

fwiw- I usually like my ciders at 1.004-6

Thanks a ton and stay safe out there.

Just asking a silly question, do you like your ciders to start at 1.004-6? I think that would be hard. Anyways, I'm no good either, but here's a post that might help a tiny bit:

Fermenting in store bottle

Doesn't say how many gravity points, but he says it adds aoubt 1.5% ABV in one gallon. Five gallons it would add about .3% ABV. That's a start.

Thanks for response. I should have been more clear. I was wondering about the gravity points for back sweetening, not primary fermentation.
My ciders usually finish between 998-1.0
