  1. First time doing a sweet cider. 1 gal batch fermented with champagne yeast. I will be 12 oz bottling and would like a little fiz and sweetness. I know if I add Potassium Sorbate it will kill the yeast not sure how to carb then. Or bottle prime with 1/2 to 3/4 t spoon of sugar then sweeten with artificial sweeteners... Not sure what to do here... Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated...

    I did not know the LBK's changed. I'll have to check them out and see what the difference is.

    Getting back into this!

    I have been out of the brewing game for several years. Last week on a whim I started a batch of hard cider. That got my gears going again. I have 3 LBK's and some 5 gal brew buckets. I found some American light / booster with an expiration date of 04/2015. Should I give it a go? I will make a trip to my home brew store next weekend to stock back up.

    Moved from wrong thread... Picked up this nice looking kit from my LHBS this morning. Have any of you guys had this one before? I am also debating making this a lager or an ale... I do have a converted freezer able to hold temps so a lager is not a problem. What do you think? I may be doing this Sunday or Monday morning... www.dropbox.com/s/m50c6sn022wywrq/20130831_215407.jpg www.dropbox.com/s/6xwnsrk4668jeqe/20130831_220445.jpg
