Engineer by degree, but I code for a living. Recently switched to using a tablet for leisure internet, like this site, but the on-screen keyboard is horrible, so please forgive my missing letters and things!

comment Airlock required for lagering or conditioning?
I seriously doubt the stopper would hold to the point of the carboy exploding, hehe. I could blow the stopper out of a tube, but doubt I could blow into a carboy and get it to explode!

+1 on the foil and a rubber band.

comment What is the secondary fermentation debate?
In commercial brewing the fermentation tank is lightly pressurized with CO2 and the valve at the bottom of the fermenter is opened until the yeast is drained. So in effect, commercial brewers (at least the one I hang around at) DO remove yeast. They also transfer from fermenters to bright tanks. So I would say commercial (at least on the craft level) take steps to separate beer from yeast before packaging.

comment Aerating bottled apple juice for cider
Thanks Gustavo. I aerated by shaking (before I saw your answer). Maybe you could add to your answer, if you know what risks to flavor would appear with aeration. Or if aeration will not effect flavor in the final product.

You store / age / "secondary" your bottles at what temperature?

But when the manufacturer pasturized, did they not remove all the oxygen?

Graham, Why he hops? Seems like you'd just want the long chain sugars to keep it from drying out too much, and hops might make it beer like.

Mine is allafrance and was $8. Right on at both ice and boiling, if used properly. Here's a video I did: youtube.com/watch?v=y3Megyi5Q_4

A wiki might indeed be the best for this question. It would have been awesome if someone had some kind of aeromatic equations built into a spreadsheet where you could plug in times and temperatures (that's what I was hoping for). But short of that, we can just spell out what worked and what didn't.
