    For the three gallon batch I used "three inches" of fresh ginger. This is in no way a precise
    measurement... I just broke off about that much, peeled it, rough chopped it and then steeped
    it in about ...

    It shouldn't be a big deal about the pectin. Adding the enzyme will help to clear it in the

    I made a three gallon batch using fresh ginger.I peeled it (roughly an inch per gallon-i really
    like ginger) and rough chopped it then steeped it with about two cups of the cider. Strained it

    I'm wondering how this turned out.I just started a batch using bottled blueberry concentrate.
    Not as sexy as the berries but it is January... I couldn't wait till the season gets into
