    Have 2 1/2 gallons of unfermented peach cider. What else do I need?

    Picked up a bunch of peach cider in SC recently, and I want to make a hard cider. Some alsay just add yeast, others advise diluting to 4 gallons first. Still others say I need to add peaches. What say you? I've never made a cider before, so I'm not good at educated guesses.

    Do you really need the 60 minute boil?

    I make good beer, so why change.

    Do you really need the 60 minute boil?

    No, I have fermentation temp control. Even if they didn't know it, the folks who fermented in caves were doing so because of temp control. Therefore, my position remains unchallenged.

    Do you really need the 60 minute boil?

    I have never wavered from the 60 minute boil. In my opinion, there is no reason to mess with the common way of doing things.

    Online shops to use? Or avoid?!

    Always Atlantic Brew Supply! Those guys know their stuff, and they carry almost everything - homebrew to commercial. I use to use Northern Brewer, but since I live in Raleigh I have gone ABS exclusively. https://www.atlanticbrewsupply.com/

    All-grain Brewing Alone

    I clean all of my pre-boil and boil equipment after each use, and then just depend on the boil to sanitize. I clean all of my post-boil stuff after use, then sanitize before using after the boil.

    Anyone install a LP tank at their house?

    Like the title says! My wife and I are considering doing the same and we have a few questions: 1) How long does a tank last when you are using just a gas fireplace and outside burners? 2) Was it worth it? We have a new electric water heater and an electric heat pump that isn't dying...
