    Hmmm, yes, I will be aging - I don't plan on drinking until christmas and it will be carbonated
    - looks like I'll toss a Campden in.

    I'm getting ready to bottle a cider this weekend and it suddenly dawned on me that maybe I
    should add a Campden tablet before I bottle.Am I supposed to?/Is it recommended?

    Good to see another Kiwi in here! Sorry I can't help you though. I just wanted to point out

    This might seem like a silly question, but I've been thinking about it too long not to ask. Is
    it possible to use too much fruit in a must? What happens if I use more fruit that is required

    Well, I'm still alive after the sip I had last night while racking, so It can't be all bad!You

    You truely get what you pay for! at $9.99, Cardboard Chateau is the cheapest of cheap. A more

    I started a 1G cider 1/24/09 with an SG of 1.050 and primaried for 8 weeks at which I had
