Thanks! Good Information. I never thought of the fertilizing regimen influencing the fermentation activity this much. Now that you pointed it out, it makes so much sense.
So by fermenting cold, I might have been doing something that will produce a better cider!
Do you work at Bellwether? Just curious. My wife and I used to travel to the Finger Lakes region (we haven't been there in three years since my wife became prgnant with our first) and might have been to your establishment!
