    Soooooooo.....
    To have something to do during the boil this weekend, I grabbed some champagne yeast and put it in unsweetened apple juice with cane sugar added. The way I ended up, OG is 1.010. Total hillbilly/redneck, I know, but it seemed like a fun idea...

    Anyway, question is this: come time to put this in bottles, I think I'd go ahead and carbinate and make it "sparkling"; will the same calculator used for beer work for this as well?

    I'll have about 2 gallons, 2.5 volumes CO2 at 68 says I would use 1.8 oz corn sugar.

    Yep. The beer priming calculator works for cider. Your carbing plan looks spot on.

    As a native Kentuckian who has seen "wine" made the same way, hat tip, y'all.... Might make you go blind but you'll enjoy the ride!

    You know you're a Southerner when you know the difference between the verbs "fixin'" and "aimin" to do something.

    When Momma's fixin' t' whup yer butt, run. When she's aimin' to, it ain't so sure.
