Day six, bubbles much slower now, smell is almost gone, should be ready to transfer and add spices within a few days.

You know, a clear bucket would be sweet for a primary for head space and so I can actually see what's going on. The great white bucket makes it somewhat mysterious...

If you got the stink you know it's working!

My batch smelled like rotten eggs for the first two weeks. At bottling, the sulfur smell and taste was very noticeable. After sitting in the bottles for a few weeks, the magic cider fairy comes along and blesses each bottle, vanquishing all negative off-flavors.

Seriously, it's like magic; perfect every time!
