I'm interested in this too.
If you took Lord Gaja Goombas recipe:-
20L Aldi Apple Juice,
Red Star Montrachet Yeast
Let it get to 1.010, and cold crashed. Gelatined to run the yeast out (I keg, so I can, but bottlers will require to run the yeast dry).
Then 600g of strawberries in secondary vessel and racked the clear cider onto it for a week's soak in strawberry mashed up.
What alcohol % would you expect to get? Look at the sugar content on the bottle, specified in grams/100ml - use that to calculate SG or just pop a hydro in it and measure it.
Is there an ideal temperature for brewing cider?16-18c, largely yeast dependant. I find 16-18C worked OK for white wine yeast and US05.
I assume you can bulk prime bottles as you would for beer?Yes
