I like the label Wade! The recipe for this (I'm assuming the one you have posted looks tempting. Two quick questions. I have seen other recipes that called for liquid Pectin E, is their an equivalent if using powder? And I have also seen other recipes that called for using two sachets of yeast instead of one. What is the purpose of this?

Getting ready to start something , kinda start liking this apple honey idea, Tom posted one last week for a hard cider t6hat sounded good, or I may try the peach again, but also still wanted to try your banana. The sales will tell tommorrow.

Troy,
I use powder pectic enzyme. Follow the directions on the label. I use 1/2 tsp per gallon. I cant get the liquid locally and I buy Pectic Enzyme by the pound like all the chemicals I use. Its much cheaper than the small bottles.

I was so close to the top of this primary bucket that I bailed o the 2 yeast packets but this one is doing just fine. Meads are typically a little harder to ferment but this 1 is doing just fine. When using pectic enzyme just follow the instructions on the package but with liquid I belive its 1/4 tsp per 5-6 gallons.

Thanks Tom thats the one. Sounds good. If I was to use Juice instead of cider, what differences would I expect? Again, I ask, why 2 packs of yeast?

Plenty, big difference taste wise then its not Hard Cider. Cider has a totally different taste compared to apple juice. Try it, you will never know unless you try it. Then its called hard apple juice?

I don't use two packs of yeast for hard cider either.

.. a starter with a half a pack of yeast is plenty for a 6 gallon batch.
