Turbo Time!

Post by chefgage » Sun Oct 01, 2017 8:44 am

Decided to give turbo cider a go whilst i am waiting for my beer to condition.
I got this on last night. I went for a 2/3 apple juice to 1/3 white grape, pear and apple with the usual yeast nutrient and a cup of tea made with 3 teabags. I used a cider yeast from Wilkos into a 1 gallon demi john.

After 1 hour it was away fermenting. This is not turbo cider its hyperspeed cider!!!!! :):)

After a week or so fermenting this is now clearing nicely in the demi john. Soon be drinking it :) Which is good as the home brew stocks have run out but I do have 60 bottles of beer conditioning, but they will be not ready for a few weeks yet :cry:

chef,
Tomorrow is your bottling day! =D>
50gr sugar batch prime.
Then get the next Brew on.
Look on .....viewtopic.php?f=13&t=37444
On there you will find a plethora of recipes.
You may as well make 20Lts, it don`t last long! :D
Take a look in `Other Brews`, there are one or two of my concoctions on there #-o

I do have a spare fermenter, so a 20l batch is more than likely going to happen. I havent taken any gravity readings and there is still activity in the air lock. But from experience after 2 weeks it ahould be fermented out and the activity is just co2 coming out of suspension ( think thats the correct term).

Is there any benifit in leaving it to condition or is it a case of prime, wait for it to carbonate and then drink :)
