    Any thoughts on how each of those might fare at ~70-71 in 7 days?I'd expect that any of those
    yeasts would ferment down to the 1.010 range within 5-6 days at 70-71F. The tricky part will be

    This past Monday, friends and I got ~250 gallons of Cortland, Gala and Jonathan juice. About a
    third of each apple in the mix. SG was 1.050, which is about average for this time of year, but
    lower tha...

    That seems odd to me; I have ciders in carboys for over a year and get no acetic, though
    sometimes I do get lactic. Acetic requires oxygen - how is that getting into your cider? Are
    those carboys plas...
