12.75lbs?!?! Was this an extract or an AG batch? OG/FG?

I've got a list of brews to make and I just added 5 more stouts to the list. I'm also contemplating doing a mini-mash as I only do extract brewing now. But my craptastic stove has two settings "Artic & Flaming Pits of Hell". Not sure if I can maintian 150F for 45mins in there.

Have you ever done a cider? I'm very tempted to start one but everything I read on the NB website states it takes 6 months to condition...guess I better start now.
