Looking forward to see how the different sugars influence the taste. Please keep us updated
Interesting! I like the sound of that.Vassili,
I find that honey brings a far nicer taste to TC. I’ll be interested to hear what you think when you complete your trial.
One other addition to a honey based TC that’s worth a try is, a 410g tin of pears that have been liquidised in a food processor.
If you do try this one then only make about 4 litres in the first instance and wait until the most vigorous part of the fermentation has passed, and then top it up with AJ. If you don’t it will come through the airlock.
How much extra sugar I want to take it up to mid 6 range which is my prefered drinking strength for cider?My latest batch of TC has just finished fermenting, I added a little extra sugar at the start lol. I've taken its FG and I believe it is around 8.8%abv, I think this batch may qualify as Twin Turbo Cider
You can use this calculator to estimate the ABV based on the sugar content (add all of the sugar in your juice and any additional sugar added)
It's ready for bottling at that SG. I've never used yeast nutrient for carbonation - my last batch was ready in 3 daysHi all
I've finally had a go at this turbo cider business. I'm not a big cider drinker but don't mind odd one when it's cracking the flags!
Anyway I threw it together on 10th and it's been hanging around 1.002-1.000 for a couple of days. It seemed to stall at 1.008 so I added some yeast nutrient and its stopped again.
So the question is what's the harm in me bottling it now with only 2.5g sugar per 500ml and some yeast nutrient?
