    Grainfather!!

    I went through all this 3 years ago. Eventually got the old boiler's plug loose from the failed Connect unit. Both boilers work!

    Amount of water to add for Chinese rice wine?

    It comes out too sweet, particularly if you start with sticky rice. I added about 500ml mineral water to a batch of 5 cups dry rice.

    Making Traditional rice Wine. Cheap, Fun, and Different

    UPDATE: I forgot this gallon of wine with airlock sitting over my fridge with an airlock. It has indeed fermented out nearly dry over several months.

    Making Traditional rice Wine. Cheap, Fun, and Different

    I just did five cups dry sweet rice and five cups water in my electric pressure cooker on high for 12 minutes. Not sure if it needed more time or what, it came out kind of yellow and a little translucent. Those of you using an electric pressure cooker, what settings do you use?

    Fixing a very tart cider?

    I'd try cellaring the remain cider for another few months, if you have the space. Alternately, try back-sweetening it a bit, to see if that helps.

    D'oh! I bought Apple Cider pasteurized with Potassium Sorbate

    I'd probably oxygenate the hell out of it. (Shake it up if you can't add O2) Add nutrients, too. The yeast will appreciate it and it may help dissipate the sulfates.
