It was fresh pressed so very cloudy with lots of sediment. I actually don't care if it is clear or not. Once again this is my first time and I am the curious sort. Guess it's good that I wasn't born a cat.
It depends is the best answer I can give!
I have one cider now in the secondary, using just S04 yeast and unfiltered cider from my fresh pressed apples. It was crystal clear by about day 10. I have another that I racked to secondary today, and it's about 7 days old and it's not clear or even finished fermenting yet.
It will clear with time.
