Got to this thread late. I am not a cider maker so here is my question. If I use the camden tabs to stop fermentation and plan to force cab in keg, once carbed can I then bottle from keg without the worry of bottle bombs? I would think yes, but figured better to check.

That's similar to what I did. Except you'll want to use sorbate AND campden tabs (kmeta). And make sure you don't try to stop an active fermentation with them. Let it run dry and then add the sorbate and kmeta, back sweeten, wait a couple days to make sure fermentation didn't kick off again, then keg and bottle.

About two weeks into repitching, and it did referment, and it's down to the sweetness I like, and so I'm good. Whew. Thought I had to throw out a batch.

Just on my first batch debating on doing this, I went with red star champagne yeast for the current batch, would that work with this recipe or should I just wait till my carboy is free and start a batch with the Nottingham?

Started a 5 gal batch of this yesterday. No airlock movement yet. Should I leave it alone or should I give it a good stir?

So this is my third batch of this cider. It's been in the fermenter 14 days. Pulled the lid off to look and there is a thick bubbly mess on top. Checked the SG 2 days ago, and it was 1010 with the bubbly mess on top.

Not sure what to do at this point.

My two other batches didn't have the layer on top after two weeks.

Shake 'er up a bit? I think you'll most likely be fine - patience and all that.
