    Great, thanks for the info....here's to good cider....or more likely, bad cider on the first
    attempt, with the good stuff to follow.

    Dinnerstick,Should I try simply racking to bottles with no priming sugar? Perhaps there is
    enough residual to carb the bottles up?

    I love Beer-ville USA!Here's the game plan....Ferment 'till 1.015, cold crash for a day, siphon

    My Hefe took 2 months to lose that sour flavor, wait it out, put a little orange peel in the

    garage...The taste is akin to drinking dry wheat cereal...I'll give it a couple more weeks but
    is the batch ...
