Be careful, 2 days can be a long time. You might over carb in that time...

If you fill one plastic bottle, you can use it to determine when to start checking it. Once it gets firm, then start cracking them open once every few hours (i think).

Hopefully someone more experience at this can help. I like my cider dry, so I don't need to pasteurise... But I know a couple day is enough time to have it over carb.

Not wise if the carbonation isn't there yet, be patient.

Love the pic!

If there is little to no carbonation, why not crack one open and transfer into a plastic pop bottle. It sounds like things are moving along slowly.

Actually you can practice with the cap tightness on the plastic bottles and get to a point where they will release excessive pressure. No bombs, no splits, and a lot of oft needed experience.

I'm kind of new here and this is my first post. I grew up with root beer in bail top glass mason jars, hooch, more hooch, actual purchased malt extract hooch and then got old enough to actually purchase beverages legally. It was extremely seldom when there was a bomb, I've only seen one or two and those by others. I go back aways, all the way to the good ol' days".

Nice meetin' y'all.
