I though I read EdWort say somewhere in here that he doesn't (don't hate me if it's a mis-quote ). Sorry about all the questions, it's my first time...be gentle.
Look up 1 post for the yeast answer...

I'm going to go to the hippie grocery store and get organic juice. So you can ignore the absorbic acid question, but I do have a new one. How much water/vodka do I need to put in my airlock? I have an "S type" on that looks identical to this one: Airlock. Once again forgive my ignorance and thank you in advance.

hahah, dont worry about absorbic acid, look around post 40ish, when I first brewed my apfelwein I found it had Dimethyl Dicarbonate in my apple juice, I thought I was stuffed, but it turned out fantastic!!!

First, get yourself some nice Tito's Hand made Vodka from Austin. Chill it, then get a measuring cup out and pour out 1/4 cup. Carefully add it to your airlock till it is half full and equal across the two globes. Toss the rest back as a shot. Filling an airlock will never be the same.

Damn all I have is smirnoff, guess it'll have to do, but I do like your method.

Default Filling Airlocks

I never used vodka. I have always used a rinse-free sanitizer in my air locks.

Does it make a difference with winemaking?

Alright, I did it!!! It's in the corner hopefully starting to do its thing. I want to thank everyone for the help. I'll probably have more questions throughout the process, and I now know that there will be a great group of people to help talk me through it.
