okay, jocopoby, can you please detail what happened? I think we are just spinning our wheels because we don't have all the details of what happened. Also, It's been 19F at our house here in tacoma at night and my garage is a chilly 25-30 throughout the day. I've had the top part freeze a few times(if you remove it you can increase the alcohol content, thats what I did to my apple cider but I went a little overboard with that.) it recovers and the bubbles keep coming durring the conditioning, albeit not very often.
