Leaving Cider in Primary an extra week or two
 
Right now I have a 5 gallon batch. I started it on Nov 26th. I was planning on bottling it soon, but waiting till it was at it's driest. But I'm curious if I leave my cider in the primary for a little longer will it still be ok? I'm guessin it will just help it clear a little bit more.

I started it on Nov 26th.

thanks!

will be fine. I leave mine in until it's clear.

over on the beer front, there is a trend that has gone around to leave the beer in primary on the yeast for longer, instead of putting it in secondary. People are saying that it requires much longer than one or two months for yeast to begin imparting off flavors.
