    what kind of sugar and how much do you put in? what kind of yeast?

    I didn't know if cider required boiling to kill off any nasties that may cause off flavors. It
    seems like it would harm cider more than help but I thought I'd ask. I figured this batch would
    be a good...

    To boil or not to boil the cider before fermentation.... That is my question.I wouldn't think
    so. I just pitched my yeast in my cider in a 1 gallon carboy and put an airlock on it. Period.

    Super! Now the question is to honey or not to honey.... I want to for the sweetness, crispness

    I got a nasal burning whiff of CO2 or alcohol when I opened the primary to rack it off into my
    secondary(and onto the blackberry puree I made). I didn't smell too wonderful at all. Now that
    it has bee...

    Mighty nice of those lil critters. How long does the waste cleanup process take and is it
    related to airlock activity? :confused:I joined this forum b/c I find them so helpful for
    learning. One day I'...

    I keep reading about letting the yeast cleanup after themselves?That is incredibly intriguing
    to me, actually. Please 'splain me what that means...

    Good idea! A tablespoon you say? So for a 5 gallon batch that would be about 1 or 2 "pink"
