How to save a string in UTF-8 format into a txt-file?

In my program I am going to save a string into a txt.file as follow:

  StringBuffer output = new StringBuffer("some text...");
  File outputFile = new File("produkt.txt");
  FileWriter out = null;
  // Open the file
  try {
    out = new FileWriter(outputFile);
   } catch (Exception e) {
  // Write string in to the file
  try {
  }catch (IOException e) {
  // TODO Auto-generated catch block

But how can I change the program so the file could be saved in UTF-8 format ?
