Hi all,

Thinking of putting a cider down with this recipe,

23L of Juice ( about a fifth of it is going to be pear juice)

Packet of montrachet yeast

Ferment at around 18 degrees for two weeks if possible, then bottle with sugar.

With bottling do i treat the same as beer use my regular rate of sugar per bottle?

Thanks

Hughezy

If what you mean by two weeks is 'as long as it takes until it is finished' (probably close to 1.000) then yes you can prime the bottles as you would beer at a fizz rate that suits your palate

"Fizz Rate" is that a new term :p

As Manticle said .. as long as it needs to get to around 1.000

|m on my 3rd gen EC1118 and at about 18 it takes 4 days ... love how this beast just bubbles in the fermenter almost likes its carbed LOL

Disclaimer... i keg and now filter so can be a little lazier with FGs and i am with ciders :D

Bubble population is the more tech term for it but I didn't want to get too fancy.

now, don't go around with bubbles in that head! It goes soft when they pop.
