I like your attitude. To hell with standards! I think I'll start using corn as a filler in my beer now. It is the same thing as adding sugar to cider, and this group accepts that.

20 hours is not long enough to worry. Sometimes things don't get started for 48 hours. Plus, you could have not had a good seal, so the gas could have been going out somewhere else. Cider doesn't...

You don't need to pasturize a thing. Sulfites will paralize (not kill) stuff long enough for your yeast to get going. Once the yeast is going, there won't be much food left for the baddies, and the...

Just get some unfiltered apple juice and add wine yeast. Rack after 3 weeks, and again after another 1-2 months. Treat it like a wine, not a beer, because it is a "fruit wine." It will naturally want...

First off, a cider is just apple juice that has been fermented. An apple wine (apfelwein) is apple juice and sugar that has been fermented. You will find that it is pretty much the same yeast.
