I wouldn't bottle in those. Coke bottles rather.

High Temperature Distillers yeast, Rehydrated in 1l water for 30min, then 1h after adding 2tsp Fermaid K.
¼ tsp metabisuplhate to remove chloramine, 1tsp Ascorbic Acid for shelf stability
Boil to remove chlorine
9l Liquifruit clear apple, 3l Liquifruit summer pine
3 pineapples, cubed 1cm, skin on
2 cups sugar
1 lemon peel
Boil 1hr (probably unnecessary but want to see if I get any interesting Mallard flavours)
10min: Irish moss
Chill and added to fermenter through a strainer to remove all solids
Pitched at 27C, ferm at room temp
Are you sure the liquifruit is preservative free?So taken what I've learnt in the last 9 months with the "skills" I've acquired and I'm taking another shot at the pineapple beer:
Will see what happens during the ferment, shouldn't take long with this yeast at this temp.
Why go with the distillers yeast though? Wouldn't a cider or even a dedicated wine yeast like 71B give you significantly better results?
Are you sure the liquifruit is preservative free?
Will these work? They’re 1l and seem fairly strong.
Yeah. Seems the easiest way to make some beer with the least amount of effort!
Where am I going to find Lion and Castle bottles during Level 3?
lol - I use a cooler box with a lockable lid. It became mandatory after a bottle jetted the wall.2l PET Coke bottles in a black Big Jim storage box works just as well.
Put something heavy on top once the bottles are inside and tada! A nifty bottle bomb splash guard.
No more mess to clean up if one of them pops, just hose out the box
OK. I'm going to try some fermenting. The recipe above. Will this yeast work?Pretty simple. For 10l.
4l cranberry juice + 4l apple juice + 125g sugar per litre, and 1/2 pack (5g) yeast (I usually use Anchor). The I bring it up to 9l with some water.
I used to work on two weeks fermenting, then bottle but I've got a means of seeing when fermentation stops so I'll have a better idea after this time around.
I'll get the brand of juice I use later when I go to checkers.
