    Great advice, Doctor CAD... with that being said, in your opinion would it be worth spending
    the extra $30-$40 to make a better, "fuller" wine using a better kit?

    I've decided to take a break from brewing beer (due to issues with my water source) and have
    decided to try my hand at wine-making. I'm thinking of using one of the "Mosti Mondiale

    The sorbated cider I got from the grocery store. I'm thinking of making a starter with yeast
    nutrient and 24oz or so of FRESH cider. Ideas?

    I pitched the yeast last night after I had combined all the ingredients at room temperature...
    Given that I'm making 5 gallons of cider, how large a starter do you recommend I make? Should I
    let it si...

    Good advice. After a few more days of sitting, the beer seems to settling into itself a lot
    better, and the flavor has improved significantly (in fact, it's got almost too much of the
    Apricot flavorin...

    Flavoring, 3 Lbs. Apri...
