    How to make cider

    No timescale What is your FG? how sweet do you want it ?.Has the yeast settled to the bottom ? is it clear ? Unless you use a turbo Klar which clears in 24hours natural clearing can take weeks .All this before you bottle!

    How are we doing?Don't worry about acidity you can back sweeten it with juice out a carton later. I myself are running 3x5 gallons at present 1 of juice and 2 from the pulp, the juice gave me a SG of 1055 which is normal the pulp gave me SG of1030 which I syrup'ed up to 1080 to produce a scrumpy with floaters. I am on day 10 at moment with the pulp two finishing off at .985 which will give me a very dry cider at just over 12.8% I will back sweeten it with quality apple juice down to 9% then bottle. The juice one is a bit slower and at present is just at 1010 I will bring this down to 1005 which will give me a medium sweet and once clear will bottle. All were started at same time with a turbo yeast with a room temp of 22c. The pulp was mixed 50/50 to water I sterilize with the same stuff...see more »How are we doing?Don't worry about acidity you can back sweeten it with juice out a carton later.
