    How to make Turbo Cider.

    I was given a recipe that added 2 litres of apple juice to a 23l fermented batch instead of adding sugar to bottles etc . I have been told it provides plenty of fizz . Anyone else tried it ? Seems the easiest way to prime a batch to me .

    Back to brewing.

    Both are just under the 1.000 on final gravity before priming and fairly dry . Iv calculated that to be for both between 6 and 6.5 % does that seem right ? Once primed with sugar around 7% before drinking ? Matt.

    Back to brewing.

    Moved the ciders to the cold conservatory as both have stopped bubbling. Hopefully it will clear in the cold ready for bottling . . Had a taste and all seems ok infact not bad at all. Forgot to take Fg reading ill do it in a minute. Wine still bubbling away happily .
