    john bull country cider

    I'm just going to have it as it is. Not too bothered about chilling it. Can maybe add an ice cube or two.

    john bull country cider

    update: I siphoned off the cider today into a' bag in box'. It had been in the FV for 10 day's and for the last two day's was reading at FG: 1006 with an ABV 5.78%. I have not primed and will now let it sit for 1 month and update from there. I did sample it. It is to my taste. I can see why...

    john bull country cider

    Thanks for the reply. I have made this before but it was years ago and have forgotten what is tastes like. I like flat, strong cider and i am fermenting 18L to hopefully get 7% ABV. Just don't know if priming is necessary if i don't want it sparkling. I will keep you noted as i carry on...

    john bull country cider

    Hey guys, I'm currently fermenting this cider. My query is, when i come to siphon off, i want it to be flat when i drink it, similar to scrumpy. Do i go about this by not priming? or do i need to prime for other reasons than carbonation?

    Brew Belts.

    What do you guys say about brew belts? have you got one, do you use it and is it worth getting one for brewing in winter?

    Pressure barrel bulging!

    its only a plastic screw cap. i got the barrel from wilko. when i unscrewed the top, the gas just hissed out, (like opening a bottle of coke) no beer has leaked. must be lucky i suppose lol

    Pressure barrel bulging!

    forgot to say i released the cap to allow the gas out, its very warm here at the moment so the gas will no doubt build up again fast. i do have a valve on the cap its a white rubber thingy. :lol:

    im brewing youngs harvest pilsner lager and 6 days after barreling, the bottom has bulged and taken it off its feet. i have a 5 gallon youngs pressure barrel. the above advice is very useful. :thumb:
