I love the amount of knowledge people have on here. This first brew has been so intimidating.

Would there be any benefit to bottling it earlier? I've been brewing it for 2 weeks now.

As a means to prevent the cider from turning into vinegar that is.

no proceed as planned by the sound of your other posts it sounds like the airlock was doing its job. unless you had an open airway for a long time your fine.

have a drink. give it time. not that cider can't turn to vinegar, but the 'my cider is going to turn to vinegar' panic is right up there with the 'your homebrew is going to poison me' panic.
to get vinegar you first need alcohol, then acetobacter and oxygen. from my few endeavors intentionally making vinegar, it takes quite a bit of oxygen.
if you do get vinegar, age it out a few months, bottle it in a cutesy way with some juniper berries or whatever, tie a ribbon on it and charge a frigging arm and a leg for it at a farmers market

Thanks all you guys for quelling my fears. . We recently found out my wife is pregenant (1 hour after beginning my cider actually) with out first child so I think my worries have been transposing into my first batch of brew

Congrats, maybe you need to brew up a celebratory brew to open in nine months
