In my spiced cider, my orange zest and cloves are floating at the top--will they eventually fall to the bottom? Is it a real concern? I'm hoping to not transfer them to secondary--but worried they'll get sucked into my siphon hose
Some stuff floats, some sinks. The flavors will be transferred regardless, as a ferment is rather active and the cider will mix. You can always put some cheese cloth over the end of the siphon.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

cheese cloth! genius! Thanks a ton, now i'm totally at ease with this batch
I'll be adding more spices to secondary for a week and then racking again settle 2 weeks, then bottle
i just hope its sweet enough to compete with my spices
