After finishing up my first two successful batches (5 gallons each) of hard cider - I am looking forward to making my next batches. Thanks again for all the help here on the Cider forum!
I was pleased w/ the outcome of my first two batches. The one minor disappointment I had was that I wish it wasn’t flat. Now I know it was going to be flat because I took it down to a low SG and then added campden tabs before I bottled - but I miss the carbonation. The taste is great - but it would be better if it wasn’t flat.
So I am hoping to “carbonate” my next batches. One way is to get a keggerator - brew the cider like I’ve already done - but transfer it into a corny keg instead of bottling - and let the CO2 tank do it’s thing…
I believe the other way to carbonate in a bottle is to not kill the yeast after secondary fermentation - add a “primer/backsweetner” before bottling and bottle? Any suggestions as to what SG I might want to be at?
