Beer Cider / Cider Beer.........?

Post by WalesAles » Sat May 21, 2016 6:52 pm

Hello Boys and Girls,
Something different today! #-o

1 Can Youngs Harvest Mild (sorry Kyle-T, I had to use it)
1Kg Med Spraymalt
15Lts Tesco Apple Juice
30.3gr Delta Hops boiled 10mins in 2Lts water
1 pack Wilkos Gervin Ale Yeast
SG 1068 @22deg

Nice taste from the sample jar.
Any ideas of the FG?

WA

Yes Monkey, there will be a Dry Hop! :D

I read the title & thought that's got to be WA :lol:

Did you add any water or just the 15l of juice?

The fermentables in the kit + a KG of whatever are supposed to give you 40 pints @ 4.2%
From their speel......
"This budget kit makes 40 pints of mild bitter with ABV of 4.2%. Requires 1 kg of additional sugar, malt extract or beer enhancer."

Tesco value apple juice has 19.2g sugar / 200ml so 19.2 x 5 x 15 = an additional 1440g of sugar

What could possibly go wrong... :wink:

Van,
I used 15Lts of Apple Juice. I didn`t want to spoil it by adding water! :D
The FV lid was pushed off after 24hrs, seems to be OK so far. Great Beery smell in the Beer Shed.

I rinsed the can with boiling water.

Didn`t taste any better after batch priming.
I`ve made some stuff in my time, but this really takes the `Gold Medal` of all Cock ups! :D

If this gets better or worse in 3mths time, I will let you know! :D
