Re: Dry Cider

I don't add any sugar to my cider. Just the apple juice and the yeast. The common apple juices you can purchase in Spanish supermarkets, have an OG 1.042-1.04 g/l and I use to bottle them around 1 g/l. So the alcohol content is close to 5%. The cider is not sweet. I use to bottle some cider without ...

Re: Cranberry lemonade

Re: Can you accurately measure alcohol content?

YES! maybe you also need somewhere to put the hygrometer, you could bot put it inside the bottle :mrgreen: You can find it in most homebrew supplies shops. Plastic one is OK and no need to have any scale. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Dul-c1GIIRo/S1OzzUHpUYI/AAAAAAAAANA/0yHmRlbK5l8/s400/100_6673.jpg

Re: No activity

room temperature? if it is too cold the fermentation won't start or will be very slow

the fermentation do not starts immediately, it takes more time the fist time you use the yeast, after 2 or 3 yeast re-uses (and provided the room is warm enough) the fermentation is visible within an hour.
