    I cut a hole in my lid using a utility knife, then inserted a carboy bung with a carboy airlock
    into the hole. Simple, cheap.

    Ok, I'll take your word. I put your numbers for OG and final G into a calculator, and the
    strongest case scenario was around 15%, but that's assuming that you start off at your max
    gravity and it goes...

    Another Q. Would it be acceptable to knock down the sugar a little in this to make a wine
    that's 11-12% instead of 15% which your numbers seem to come out around? What's your opinion on
    that? :)

    So when you say "sugar", do you recommend white sucrose (table sugar) or something like
    dextrose? I've got my rhubarb in the freezer to start this on the weekend.

    So spring has sprung here in Nova Scotia and with it, the dandelions are back. I was
    considering making a dandelion wine, and I've found a few recipes on the intertubes. This one
    in particular struck ...

    Yeah, I added some yeast nutrient at outset, and again after about 1/3 ferment. I put in some
    "energizer" last week in an attempt to get it up and running again. I'm not too worried about
    the ABV, 12 ...

    Ah, I thought it was a 3 gallon batch, and even so, my math was wrong. :o But I think you'll be
    close to 18% ABV. What was your OG/FG? That'll tell you for sure. Regards, GF.I actually added
    the honey...

    Ya, cidars don't have much of a yeast cake because there isn't much else besides the yeast to
    fall outThat depends on if you start with straight juice, or if you use sweet cider. Around
    here (Apple ce...

    6lbs per gallon is going to put your ABV over 18%... .18lbs in a 23L batch. 3 gal was cider,
    but 3 gal was water. Should I have hit 18% on only 3lb/gal + cider sugar?
