Cloudy cider
May 31st, 2019 at 1:35pm
 
Hello all,
Just getting back into brewing after some time away.
Got a Christmas pudding wine on the go, as well as a rose and some turbo cider.

Turbo cider:
10 litres of Tesco NFC chilled AJ (112g sugar)
250g raisin (in bag, rinsed in boiling water) (156g Sugar)
Gervin GV14 cider yeast
560 sugar
2tsp Nutrient
1tsp Pectolase
1tsp Citric acid
500ml water (5 tea bags)
2 litres FC growers harvest Aldi AJ 114g sugar
4 litres NFC naturis Aldi AJ (99g)

Total liquid 16.5 litres
Total sugar 2460 (670 per gallon, potential of around 7%)

Iíve since decanted a gallon into a DJ and added half a bottle of Lowicz, looking for a flavour brew.

My real question is... the Apple is cloudy... will my cider be cloudy forever or should it clear? Will be priming and bottling, hopefully to enjoy during a bbq Smiley

Thanks in advance, and itís good to be back.

Matts, With the pectolase it should clear but some cloudy apple juices do contain some starch so a wee dose of Amylase will do no harm. Wink

Cheers OB, no amylase in the house since a failed rice wine in 2015 Grin
Any alternatives? Iím conscious that itís as dry as itíll get, and need bottling... amylase on the next order  Roll Eyes

Matt,
Draw off a small sample into a clear Pet,give it a good shake, put in fridge for 24 hrs to see if haze drops, might work !!, Alternatively, tell them it's cloudy scrumpy, pubs are selling it !
