Default I'm less worried now...

I posted last week about my cider not bubbling after about three days even though I had put in good Lalvin 1118. After six full days, it started to bubble and is quite bubbly right now. I'm glad for that, but still a little puzzled as to why it took so long to start. Always had it start well within 48 hours in past efforts.

Are you shaking your cider? Adding yeast nutrient and FRESH yeast? I usually add two and don't bother with rehydrating. Quick starts and bubbling within 6 hours usually... Strange behavior indeed!
