Okay, thanks! I will do that.

It appears to me you also probably oxidized it from either fermenting in a pail, adding things

lees if its n...

Let's see if I can remember correctly....I started with 5 gallons of fresh unpasteurized cider

Yooper- you are spot-on! I topped it up with some fresh cider and allowed 2 weeks for it to

I finally got a hold of some dispensible cash so I'm going to hit the cider mill tomorrow for
