To the gentleman who wanted to know the timing of dry hopping:
I just throw hop pellets in a hop bag and drop them in the carboy at
pitching time. I have done this for the last three batches with no
problems. The last has been sitting in the fermenter for about 3 weeks,
as my wife decided to redecorate the kitchen and I have been reluctant
to bottle in the middle of the current disaster area.

Also, to the gentleman making hard cider -- Don't Boil It. The
cider ferments quite nicely by itself. If you can get fresh squeezed
cider, it will start fermenting by itself from the natural wild yeasts
already included with the (chopped/compressed) fruit.
