So I am new to the forum, but have been making beer for a few months now. After reading how easy the recipes were for cider and having some juice here at the house already I thought I would try my hand at one.
After I put it together the SG was 1.074 after adjusting for wort temp. I pitched the Cider Yeast and it was slow to take off but am now up to one 'burp' per second in my airlock. The current air temp is about 67. Is that optimal for being four days in to fermentation? Is there a need to keep a log of SG checks every week or just wait till the airlock is still? And most important,
Is it really going to take 4-6 weeks????
