 I already drank one of the 600ml bottles.  It is OK, not remarkable, and still a bit green.  Maybe another week is necessary.  Tried using the "frosty glass" technique to chill the room-temperature beer and I admit that it helps a bit, but it is not perfect.  Maybe going to need a fridge for the keg(s) too... I already drank one of the 600ml bottles.  It is OK, not remarkable, and still a bit green.  Maybe another week is necessary.  Tried using the "frosty glass" technique to chill the room-temperature beer and I admit that it helps a bit, but it is not perfect.  Maybe going to need a fridge for the keg(s) too...

 +Finally got around to buying the CO2 necessary to pressurise the keg.  Using the slow force carbonisation chart and assuming room-temperature ale, I used [[http://www.kegerators.com/carbonation-table.php|this table]] to decide to set the regulator to 2 bar (15psi), but I could probably have gone higher.  Beer will be at steady-state carbonisation in 10-14 days.  At the moment, it comes out easily but it tastes pretty poor.  Apart from the beers that went sour, this one is probably the worst.  About the only good thing I can say about it is that at least it has alcohol.

 I really have no idea what went wrong; I am pretty sure that my sterilisation technique and hygiene were perfect.  Charlie believes that the infection came when I opened the airlock for fermentation measurement and released the CO2 atmosphere, but that seems implausible to me.  If this is the cause, then why is it only the mash beers that are going sour and not the kit beers? I really have no idea what went wrong; I am pretty sure that my sterilisation technique and hygiene were perfect.  Charlie believes that the infection came when I opened the airlock for fermentation measurement and released the CO2 atmosphere, but that seems implausible to me.  If this is the cause, then why is it only the mash beers that are going sour and not the kit beers?

 +After reading this [[http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2014/04/22/brew-your-own-cider/|article on Mister Money Mustache]], it occured to me that I was doing things the hard way.  If hard (alcoholic) cider is really as simple as buying a jug of apple juice and tossing in a half-teaspoon of champagne yeast, why not try it? 
 + 
 +It is not that simple around here.  I did not find a source of fruit juice in convenient 5-litre or 10-litre glass jugs.  I did not find dry champagne yeast.  What I did find is pasteurised apple juice at the Denner for CHF1.10 per litre in 1-litre cartons and [[http://www.sios.ch/4766-Cider-Wyeast-Activator_2|liquid cider and wine yeast]] for CHF11.40.  Way too expensive, so I decided to make a jar of yeast starter and use only half of it to make a 24-litre batch of cidre.

 +Over the weekend I monitored the progress of the yeast in the 1 litre of apple juice using the lab webcam and saw that the yeast falls to the bottom instead of floating on the surface like an ale. 
 + 
 +With the help of Martin, Yvonne, and Alexandre, we innoculated a batch of 24 litres of Denner apple juice using half of the yeast-and-juice solution. 
 + 
 +The O.G. of the juice was 1.041.
