Still going (EdWort's Apfelwein )
 
My air lock is still bubbling after 18 days, is that normal?

The carboy has been stored at somware between 66F-71F.

You're right on track ;) The (Montrachet) wine yeast ferments slower than most Ale yeasts.....plus....there's a lot of sugar in 5 gallons of applejuice!

That's kinda what I thought.

Thanks.

I used WLP775 English Cider Yeast.

I'm also using WLP775 Yeast but with a slight variation on the recipe. Once I get to around ~ 6% ABV, I'm "killing" the fermentation with Potassium Sorbate.
