You can divide by 5 for everything but the pre-boil volume, because the boil-off depends on the pot and does not scale by batch size. If you know the post-boil volume you want and the boil-off rate...

Just so I understand correctly, you ferment until 1.010, then bottle and let the fermentation finish? I take it that the...

Yeast Starters

My method was to dump the grains, rinse the bag well, and spray with sanitizer (Iodophor solution, in my case). I've never had an infection this way, but I've always worried about it.

How Do I Predict First Runnings Gravity

Doesn't that concentrate just ferment right back out to a dry cider? Does it actually leave more apple taste than what you had before?

Your boil-off in gal/hr will depend on your equipment.

Yeast Nutrient, Energizer, or Nothing?

IIRC, Palmers book says that beer wort contains what the yeast need to thrive and grow. (I think this may not be the case for wine, cider, mead, etc.)

So, do you (should I) use yeast nutrient? ...
