pectin enzyme
 
Must you use pectin enzyme? I have a three gallon batch of unfilterd cider and decided to try it without adding the pectin enzyme. I have never smelled any cider as bad as this is. WOW! It stinks. Fermentation is really slow also. Did I make a mistake or is this normal. I used Safale 04 yeast

Not necessary. I have made quite a bit of Cider from raw, unfiltered Cider and it comes out crystal clear. Fermentation should be fairly quick (a week or so), especially with that strain. Conditioning is a different story.
