I have 4 gallons of cider that I am about to bottle after 2 months. 1 month in primary, 1 month in secondary. I used 4 pounds on honey at the start. OG was 1.070, 4 weeks in it was .996.
I would like a high carbonated cider, I am thinking 3.0 volumes of CO2. Using http://www.northernbrewer.com/priming-sugar-calculator/ it came out to 5.65 oz of honey to use.
Should their still be enough residual yeast to carb at this point?
I am considering heating a little bit of new cider to dissolve the honey. For the small amount should I worry about added sugars that would add to the carbonation?
