787 + 16 = 803

I just started five more gallons. Well actually didn’t start anything. I got five gallons I’m gonna let go to spontaneously ferment.

803 + 5 = 808

Yeah it was my most fav. I’m guarding the last six. What was your ratios? Fruit or juice.
i did 5.5 gallons of apple juice and after two weeks i did 3 pounds of tart cherries i bought from Costco.

i plan to swap out the 2 pounds of brow sugar with just white cane. i also plan to take the cherries out and let the yeast settle out for a week this time. i pulled the fruit and bottled the same day.

Thanks. I started 5.5 gal. with 71b-1122 ten days ago.

Today I racked it on top of 3 pounds of frozen cherries from B.J.’s. Most of the yeast went down the drain.

5 gal of sparkling cider.
Used a mixture of store bought juice and raw juice from a friend's orchard. Added 3lbs extra sugar to push the OG to 1.084 and fermenting dry with EC-1118. Will backsweeten with another gallon of raw juice and then pasteurize.

891 + 5 = 896

Will do. Just pressed the last of the russetts and the stuff was the color of lemonade even though the SG was 1.066. Wish I could have left them on the tree a week longer but that freeze was bearing down on me.
