  • Posted in thread: To boil or not to BOIL?? on 11-27-2011 at 03:56 AM

    I always use yeast nutrient for my cider and it takes off like a rocket. If I use fresh pressed

    You can wait till 1.000 or 1.004or5. Judging by your OG it should be a whopper by the time it

  • Posted in thread: Questions about larger batches of cider on 08-15-2011 at 02:56 PM
    I have learned that good cider comes from a sanitary environment. Since it ferments so quickly,
    you'll secondary in a matter of days to glass or stainless. I use glass and better bottles for
    my cider ...
