    Thanks for your input and suggestions. I just like to be thorough before jumping into
    something. I might do the cooler method with a gallon to start just to get a feel for it. But
    I'm more of an autom...

    I haven't personally used a wine or champagne yeast, but consensus around here is that they
    ferment very quickly and very dry. Most say that the apple flavor gets stripped away and the
    cider needs lon...

    Looking at chest freezers. Will a little 5 cu ft model be sufficient for 6.5 gal? Or shouldI

    I can't brew ...

    temperature. I add 1/2 - 1 lb corn sugar to a gallon with 1/2 sachet of Munich wheat yeast and
    let it go till ...

    I am on the paleo diet and I can't drink grain brew any longer. It's been over a year and Lord
    knows that I miss a good beer. So, I took up drinking hard cider and am looking into home brew.
