    First all grain

    and it's the only good thing he done.

    old product, is it working?

    As mentioned before, as long as the cans aren't bulging, or there are other signs of "oopsy", you can use it. The yeast is the first to go. However, you said it worked, so there you go. As for adding 1.5 cups sugar... um... er... yeah, you might want to let the Bottled product sit for at least 2 months at room temp. There is going to be a cider taste to it. Go read that simple guide line. Information all over the place.

    Higher Alcohol Content

    True. The Alcohol % will go up. But then, so will the cider taste. It will take a lot longer to mellow out. If you're going to do it that way, hey, save the booster and honey, and when you just go to drink the beer, add a shot of Vodka. That works as well. I know it's "old", but I do suggest you go read The Simple Guide Line.

    Stupid ?

    what is up with this batch ?

    Do you have a hydrometer? Sometimes you'll have a minor stuck fermentation. It's possible that the yeast kicked back into action.

    flip top bottles

    the only thing I could add is... make sure they have glasses capable of holding the 16oz of beer.

    Newbie wanna be brewer needs advice.

    you might find a few answers to the goings on in "The Simple Guide Line". Just saying...

    tower fittings loose

    did you pop the cap off the top (provided it's built that way) and see if you could tighten it?

    Is this going to be a bad batch ?

    Nothing to really worry about. You get some trub with bottle carbing. It just means the yeast is still active and doing it's job. Let it sit for the suggested 4 weeks at the room temp, and there you have it. Pour gentle...

    Brewing with Wild Yeast/Open Vat

    That would depend on what type of "wild" yeast you have in your area. The dominant strain where I use to live was UGLY.

    have you tried these

    We looked at those when they first came out. Too friggin expensive.

    Bottling Wand and Pressure

    Are you sure it was on securely?
  14. I only tried to use sugar to carb the ciders, and soon gave that up. No help here. Never tried to use FAC to carb the cider. Time to measure and record (keep records) and see how it goes.
