    Most posts here definitely recommend adding fruit once racked to the secondary, but I'm not sure how much to add. I have a can of cherries in syrup, but how much to add to the secondary?? The whole can (not a small can, the bigger ones. like a can of tomatoes)?? Thanks

    I have read the many posts about making a chiller, but most just mention 3/8" (9.52mm) as the outside diameter of the copper tubing. What inner diameter hose should I use?? I can get 15m (50') of copper tubing for $28 and 50' of garden hose for $10. Seems like a pretty good deal based on...

    Adding Yeast - Sprinkle on top or mix??

    Hi, The instruction on my first kit (Morgan's) said to mix the yeast in thoroughly. Now i'm on my second batch (Munton's Premium Gold) and the way I read it, it just says to add the yeast on top?? Am I reading this correctly??? Or should I always mix the yeast in with everything??? Thanks,
