I use a gallon of Whole Food's juice and one pound of honey. I remove about three cups of juice from the jug to begin the preparation.
Gently warm the container of honey and eventually dilute the honey in a sterile saucepan with a little of the juice. I don't boil anything. Just very low heat. I pitch the rehydrated EC-1118 in the jug, give it a little shake and then pour in the diluted honey mixture. Top off with a little of the previously removed juice and install the airlock.
I have two jugs bubbling away in my attic. I have had some very good results with nice apple and honey taste, nice sweetness, and a respectable alcohol level.
