Newton's Folly Clone

I'm looking around to see if anyone has a clone for their Granny Smith flavor. My brother is quite partial to the stuff, so I'd like to make him a batch. It is fairly low ABV so I'm assuming that...

Id love to get my hands on a 3 gallon barrel. But I'm pretty sure they don't make those. I'll look around fir a barrel, and I'll try to get around to making this one sometime before I go.

Do you think Silicon will deteriorate in an alcohol rich environment? The batch I'd like to put in there will be about 10% I believe. Or at least roughly that amt. considering I don't have a...

Well, seeing as how a box that is 1 cubic foot holds 7 gallons, I don't think this project will be too difficult. Maybe, I'm underestimating this project, but it should by something fun to work on.

I could always use straps to create the pressure. Straps running horizontally and vertically. They could put a lot of pressure on it if I use wratcheting straps.

A box barrel.

I'm looking around, and I've notices that barrels are fairly expensive. Also that I wouldn't know how to go about making one. I'm toying with the idea of making a barrel box for my cider. Basically...

It could be that it got hot enough to make the yeast over react, or just plain speed it. The smell might be just a very high concentration of the CO2 and other byproducts of the yeast. I know that...

So there are only 3 methods of carbonation that I have heard of.

1. Natural carbonation- bottling before the cider is done fermenting and let the yeast eat up the sugars then heat pasturize.
