If you open up an electrical panel, you will notice that the neutral bar and the ground bar are either the same, or tied together.

Most 240 devices have no need for a neutral. The ground is just...

Would the plastic champagne corks and wire cages work? Those can just be inserted with your hand, and don't cost much.

As far as the comment about using a garbage disposal. It is possible to use one however in my research I found many problems with the idea. First of all, a garbage disposal is not designed to...

By looking at your pictures I think you walls are made from 2x3s or 2x6s ripped in half. These should be more than strong enough for your project. The only down side is you don't have as much room...

I would guess that is has fermented, and it is probably quite good. I had a half gallon of fresh squeezed cider that got forgotten in the fridge. When I found it, the cider was nicely carbonated...

It is not going to ferment very fast in the fridge :). Seriously, there is no reason to refrigerate it until it is ready to drink, it will just slow the entire clearing and aging process down.

I think it might be a reaction to the campden tablets. I had a similar problem once when I was making rhubarb wine. I was juicing the rhubarb and adding it to a bucket in which I had already...

Neither, they are crown cappers. You can put crown caps on champagne bottles. As others have said; if you have beer bottles handy, use them.

When you make drinks with this high of alcohol it will always be a little "hot" to start with. The best thing you can do is let it age for 6 - 12 months.

As far as the cranberry and raspberry...

I typically use potassium sorbate to stabilize my ciders and wine. I don't really notice much of a taste from it, but maybe it is just me.

In theory cold crashing should cause all of the yeast to...

I think bargainfittings is right, it would be a little hard on the machine. But other than that I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. Maybe if your juicer is still under warranty :-)

What you are making is more of an apple wine than an apple cider. When you get into that high of alcohol contents it can take quite some time for fermentation to finish. I usually let my fruit...

I'm not talking about lactose or splenda. I'm talking about back sweetening with either beet, cane, or corn sugar. Maybe it's just me, but I can't taste the difference between cider with residual...

Why all the effort to stop an active fermentation. Why not just let it ferment to dry then back sweeten to the desired taste and force carbonate if desired?

After all it appears that the ones...

My only concern is that unless you have stabilized the wine, or you added a lot of sugar to begin with. 1.010 doesn't sound like fermentation has finished. Most wine will finish under 1.0 possibly...

I can't say for sure, but I'm guessing that the Kool-Aid is being used for the acid content. You should be able to use something like acid blend in place of it.
