    Sunday, I had some friends over to check out some ciders from this year and previous years.
    We made it through 20 bottles, plus a few growlers from what's currently on tap. 24 folks
    stayed coherent ...

    I looked back to check but cannot find any mention of why you started using K-met. So, why did
    you? I started using k-meta again on about half of my keg batches, to get better longevity.
    With no k-met...

    So I'm assuming unless I have a complete halt in fermentation, i'll just keep letting it work
    away slowly.Sounds like a plan. A 27 point drop in the first 9 days does seem a little slow for
    S04 at 68F...

    I can stop fermentation by racking into a secondary with s04 or nottingham while using
    pasteurized cider? Or would I need to cold crash as well?It depends on the juice. If it has a
    low enough nutrient...

    Is this sounding ok at this stage? Or should I be expecting quite a layer of thick krauson on
    top?A 15pt drop in 5 days is a little slow for S04 at 68F, but not slow enough to worry about.
    With that m...

    they did Pink Lady, Gala and some Grannies tooThat sounds like a good mixDo you think
    Blackberries would work well too?I dont see why not. I havent used them, but they are similar
    enough to raspberrie...

    would Galas alone (ie no other varieties) make a good cider?I really like Galas as an aroma /
    flavor apple in a mix. As a single varietal, they are not ideal - but if its all you can get,
    its better t...

    Do you have a post in here that specifically addresses your process of cold crashing?There are
    a few posts that talk about it. If you search this thread for 'cold crash' you will find a
    bunch, as well...

    On Feb 12th, we did the last pressing of the season. The juice was a third each of Stayman,
    Albemarle Pippen and Winesap. This was probably my favorite juice of the season. It has a nice
    apple aroma t...
