Fermenting Cranberry Juice

President’s Choice 100% Juice Blend Cranberry that is. Apples and Cranberrys.

26g of sugar is about the same as the apple juice. Quite tart to taste so we’ll see how that goes. Interesting that the specific gravity reading is closer to 1.047… What does that mean for the potential?

Same deal as the others, 1/4 tsp of EC-1118 yeast and in the closet.

Now we play the waiting game…

12 Hour Update (Monday Sep 16)

Cranberry foam had actually travelled up the airlock.

Tuesday September 17 Morning Update

Both are still fizzing like nuts. Airlock of the cranvanberry has been taken over by pink invaders.

Wednesday September 18 Update

Very fizzy pour! I read 1.01 sp.gr. on the hydrometer! Smells yeasty. Tastes bitter like you would expect from cranjuice. Online ABV calculator says 4.86% – not bad!
