With juicy apples it's no problem. When the apples are drier I have to remove that white
extension or it can clog. I just run a little water or juice down the "drain" and it gets
going.It can overheat...

^ Are the holes just on the bottom of the 5 gallon bucket for the juice to come out of?No.
Bucket isn't a part of the setup. Like I said, not a great picture. He's a picture of my buddy

I should probably show a picture of this setup in action because these pictures really don't do

Sorry it took so long to get back to you on this. I'm using a variety of apples that I'm
gleaning from local trees here and in East Helena. I try to mix in as many crab apple varieties
as I have the p...

That just looks like yeast clumps, and shouldn't be anything to worry about. Once fermentation
slows down, (should be now, or anytime now), top up to within two inches of the bung and just
