This is a test run using Knudsens organic pear juice. Very pricey at 6 dollars a quart/ making 0.75 gallon Measured SG = 1.058 (NO sugar was added- used sugar on grainbill because an option for pear juice is not there :) )
Yeast will be mangrove jack belgian
make starter with 1 cap of water and 1.2 oz of table sugar. I will use ~ 1/3 of the pack which should be way more than enough of a pitch. Aeration will be with vigourous shaking of half-filled 1 gallon jug.then top off. I wired on the rubber bung and airlock. seemed like it wants to pop off.
Pitch 2 PM 9/6/15
Added pectinase 9/7/15 to help clarification
SG = 1.012 on 9.25.15 6% ABV
Taste test : more like a white wine than a cider. Good. Carb this baby up
tasted 10/2. Very nice!!!!!! light and fruity, really like a smei dry white wine
