    I recently put together a copper worm to cool my hot wart and am looking forward to putting it

    I suppose I should probably be eating crow right now. I forgot an important step in making the
    cider on Saturday (oct 29). It completely forgot to take a gravity reading! :drunk:So can
    anyone give me ...

    movements a minut...

    much of a chanc...

    I was sanitizing hose next to the cooling wort and got about 2-4oz of a bleach solution into
    the wort. In a batch of 5 gallons I don't expect that much to be worrysome for the health of
    the wort or th...
