Getting Fruity?

Post by Uncle Joshua » Tue Apr 21, 2020 10:24 pm

I want to make a turbo cider with Robinsons Strawberry and Kiwi fruit juice added, how much juice should I add to a 23l brew?

I would use 2 x 1 litre bottles, possibly three, as I regularly use 1L for an 8l batch

Uncle Josh,
Is this proper juice or squash/cordial?
If cordial, read the ingredients, any sulphites or sulphates, add it after fermentation. (Otherwise it will kill the yeast).
4Lts should be enough.

See this link for a laff!

UJ,
Sulphites in there. Bung it in AFTER fermentation.

Hello all, i'm trying a fruity turbo cider for the first time. using 4l of apple juice and was planning to top up with 1/2 litre summer fruit cordial after fermentation, the cordial contains sorbates. will it still carbonate a little after bottling.
