Wow, those little champagne yeasties keep on like the Energizer bunny

I made the last batch of cider with 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar and half a packet of dry champagne yeast for each gallon.

After it stopped bubbling, I racked it into another bottle and added 1/2 cup of honey to sweeten it back up a little.
I just opened one of the bottles and had a little fizz and most of the honey has been converted too. Now I have a dryish hardish cider (at least 10.5 ABV) that I can tell has plenty of kick to it.

I can't use the hygrometer because *someone* threw a bottle in with the wine-making supplies when she was ironing and it came out of it's plastic holder in about three big pieces and lots of sharp little ones.

  2. More proof that "someone" hates you and doesn't want you to have alcohol.
