I started a cider brew one week ago and when taking the gravity today it was 1.000, the starting gravity was 1.065 which according to the calculators online I have an abv of 8.5% (ish). Is it possible for my cider to have reached this abv in under a week. The bubbles where coming fast and hard all week but have died down over the last 2 days.
The brew itself is 25 litres with 20 litres of it being apple juice from concentrate 4 litres rhubarb and apple juice and litre a strawberry and rhubarb syrup (frozen strawberries and canned rhubarb reduced down with 1kg of sugar). I used M02 yeast from mangrove jack and 1tsp of fanmax bio yeast nutrient. Finally I added diced stalks of rhubarb to the brew.
I tasted the brew today and there is not a hint of any of the other flavours just tastes like hard cider (not really complaining just disappointed) and smells very very lightly sulfury.
