trying the Nogs orange cider sort of

Recommended Posts

Took a little break from brewing. Decided to try the Nogs orange sider. Used 2 gal. apple cider , 1 lb. lactose, 600gr brown sugar ( could not find my zester) so just used 1 pint Tropicana pure premium orange juice ¼ tsp cinimin ¼ tsp pumkin pie spice . Used. Used Champaign yeast. Brewed on 5/27 my og was 1.083 today 5/31 its at 1.026 . I ‘m going to let it ferment for 3 weeks. I ‘m guesting I should it carb & condition about 4 months?

my advise - let it ferment for a month and condition for 6 months (Should be a great Christmas Day present to yourself).

IMHO - I have had better luck this way

*just curious why you took a gravity reading after 4 days?


BTW: He hates being called NOG - it's NONG :laugh:

Couple of things...
1: that's "NONG" not Nog.
2: for a 2 gallon batch, 1/2 to 3/4 lbs of Lactose would have been fine.
3: let it ferment for ONE month before bottling.
4: Leave it at room temp for 3 months before drinking. (pop in the fridge a day or two before drinking).
5: Not sure how that Tropicana pure Premium orange juice will work out, but should be interesting.
6: No nutmeg?
7: 1/4 pumpkin pie spice will be lost in it all. you need at least 1/2 to even notice it's there.
8: That's "NONG" not Nog.
:P
