Hi guys, just joined the forum and I wanted to say how much good information there is on here. For the Americans amongst us I live in the South West of England (Bristol). An area of the world renowned for it's great cider production.
At the moment I have a pair of three gallon buckets fermenting away in my kitchen, using a mix of apples donated/collected from a variety of sources. The fermentation process started at the same time although bucket 1 has got a fair bit of foam under the lid and lots of action through the airlock but number 2 doesn't have as much action through the airlock and you can hear it fizzing, plus it looks carbonated. Anyone have any idea as to why they are behaving differently/what stages they are at?
I must have about an inch and a half gap from the top of the liquid to the lid if that's any help....
Off now to search the forums for more gems!
