When should I take this stuff of the yeast cake? I want to allow the yeast enough time to "clean up", but I also don't want to run into any lysing problems. Overall, I would like to age about a year before drinking.

When should I take this stuff off the yeast cake? I want to allow the yeast enough time to "clean up", but I also want to avoid any lysis issues. Overall, I plan to age about a year before drinking. Any suggestions?

Finally opened a bottle of my first batch of this. I followed the recipe exactly except for bottle conditioning. I put in enough sugar when bottling for 4 volumes. I wanted it to be really bubbly, like a champagne. It went into primary at the very end of September. I opened a couple bottles for a family Christmas party. It was fantastic! Everyone really enjoyed, and it was everything I was hoping for. This is definitely getting made again! Here's a pic, though it's not terrific.

Give it a week after it's hit FG. That should give you plenty of time for post fermentation cleanup, without any risk of other issues.

I just bottled my last batch that was in primary (in a better bottle) for five months. I'll post how it tastes in a few weeks.

Absolutely! See my previous post. If you like a sweet cider though it's not for you (unless you backsweeten it). It comes out very dry. However, this is exactly what I was looking for, an my batch turned out fantastic.
