comment Effects of pectin
Just how much difference is there between high pectin and low pectin? I once did a strawberry mead with fresh strawberries and it turned out as cloudy as the cysers that I've made (of course, I expected those to be cloudy). Delicious! ;) ...but still quite cloudy.

comment Cherry vishnick
I rinsed the cherries thoroughly and removed all stems and leaves. I also cut a slit in a bunch of them, supposedly it improves the flavour when the pit is in contact with the liquid. I've done this a few times now and never had a problem with larvae, but I also put it in the fridge to keep the fermentation slow (it didn't stop, just slowed down a bit). The result of letting it ferment all on its own is a liquid too syrupy for my tastes, but very cherry like, and rather boozy. I still like the recipe that mixes it with vodka after a few weeks of fermentation. Not as sweet, and boozier. ;)

@mdma: I would have thought that coffee would inhibit fermentation. I'd like to see this reopened - I'm curious to hear if coffee can even be fermented.

comment Leftover Juicing Pulp in Beer?
"your beer is going to be sour" Maybe the OP should just eat a handful of the pulp as-is. If it tastes OK, then it's worth of being added to the wort. If not, then maybe dump it... Would that be a decent guideline?

"Source: wikipedia" did you mean to include a link there?

I wonder how much radon would have to be present before it affects the ability of the yeast to grow and thrive...

If this were a comic book, it would give your customers super-powers! :) In reality, I imagine it will have either no effect (if the amount is small enough) or some negative effect :(
