    So you basically ferment only in the primary, then cold crash and then bottle? Do the bottles
    still carbonate?I ferment only in the primary, then cold crash and then force carbonate in a
    keg. The only...

    I guess it is the racking what slowed the colony of yeast, but that much, really? Yes, racking
    will slow the yeast a lot. If you have a low nutrient juice, it can even stop fermentationOr
    should I kee...

    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

    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...
