Bottle it cloudy it should clear whilst its carbing up, you wont get much taste priming with lowicz, it needs adding from the start as Roddy did.

Yes exactly, mine are always murky when I bottle up

This was the first time I used the syrup in with the primary ferment, I had previously just added it purely for priming, which although still gives it a hint of flavour doesn't give it the depth of flavour I found this time round

I'll be doing a raspberry lowicz from the start as soon as I can get to the nearest shop that sells it 7 miles away, and also when the 3 DJ's I have on kitchen worktops finish and give me room.
I also wanna do a straight apple juice one when I have space

i was hoping it would clear in the bottle, i will post pics when i decide to try some.

as for shops that sell it, there probably about 100 miles away for me haha, have to get all my stuff from the tinternet or the local coop which is hopeless.

i'm doing a plain apple one the now with the addition of half a bramley apple, will also let you lot know how that turns out too.

So you put all ingredient in and just leave it ferment out is it?

yeh, everything goes in at the start, apart from the syrup I use for priming. I let it ferment out (my ciders always stop at 1.000), then rack to another bucket and mix in the syrup to prime with at that stage, then bottle immediately after.

The syrups come in a load of flavours, if you have a Polish shop nearby there're the best place to get them from, although regular supermarkets usually have a couple of flavours (cherry, raspberry, strawberry etc..)
