Hi, this is my first time doing WOW variants and dry hopped cider. Just getting everything ready and about to clean and sanitize the Dj's and new 10l fermenter bucket. I'll make these in the usual way but here are the juices I'll be using for each DJ. The juices were bought from Asda, 3 for ÃÂ£3 and the cartons of Apple Juice were 4L for ÃÂ£2.60 The Bottled water was from Tesco, ÃÂ£1.10 each I think, probably not needed here in Scotland as we have soft water but I needed the Bottles to act as Secondary fermenters, bought 3 of these (already have 1). Just need to drill out the lids and add the grommets when needed. DJ 1 - 1 litre Red Grape Juice, 1.5 litres Apple Juice (307g total sugar in juice, added 800g to make 13% ABV approx.) DJ 2 - 1 litre Red Grape Juice, 1.5 litres Summer Fruits (310g total sugar in juice, added 500g to make 9.5% ABV approx.) DJ 3 - 2 litres Red Grape Juice,Strawberry and Kiwi, 0.5 litres Apple Juice (309g total sugar in juice, added 800g to make 13% ABV approx.) DJ 4 - 1 litre Red Grape Juice, 0.5 litres Summer Fruits, 1 litre Apple Juice (308g total sugar in juice, added 800g to make 13% ABV approx) 10L Fermentaion Bucket - 8 litres Apple juice with another 2 litres to be added after about 4 days or so. (no added sugar 6.5%) Right, time to get started. Poured some Star San in my basin (brand new, washed and sterilized) then put the airlocks and bungs in then elevated the basin so everything was submerged. Washed the demijohn's with VWP and gave them a brush with the demijohn brush, gave them a really good rinse then poured in some Star San then give them a good shake. If your wondering about the foil, I use little squares of foil sprayed with Star San because I only bought 1 blank bung the others have airlock holes so the foil acts as a temporary lid. The yellow lines on the side of the DJ's mark 4 and 4.5 litres. The 10l bucket is new so need to wash and sterilize with VWP first, I later rinse thoroughly and Spray with Star San before use. I always spray the bottle lids with Star San and leave for a minute or so before pouring into the DJ's forgot to make the tea first so 4 tea bags in each mug, I then made another one later with 6 tea bags for the cider. Spraying the Lids again with Star San before opening and pouring into the fermentation bucket. I added the juice, sugar, tannin(tea), Pectolase and topped up with water to the bottom shoulder of the DJ then used my home made degas tool to mix it all together, works great to dissolve all the sugar really fast. I then added the Yeast and yeast nutrient and gave it a little swirl. From left to right, (RGJ,Summer Fruits,AJ) (RGJ, Summer Fruits) (RGJ Strawberry and kiwi, AJ) (RGJ, AJ) (bucket - AJ) 1l Red Grape Juice, 0.5l Summer Fruits, 1l Apple Juice. 1l Red Grape Juice, 1.5l Summer Fruits. 2l Red Grape Juice Strawberry and Kiwi, 0.5l Apple Juice. 1l Red Grape juice, 1.5l Apple Juice. There's activity in them all, some more than others. I'll update the thread with more photo's as the fermentation goes along. As mentioned in the title (I might also put this part in a separate thread) I want to dry hop some cider. I'm going to make 10l cider then rack it off into 2 DJ's then dry hop in the secondary, 1 will be Cascade, any other suggestions for the 2nd? Also, how much per DJ? I've read of people using 12.5g and also 25g per DJ. I've never used hops before so I don't have a clue about this. Ronnie.
