    Hey folks,I brought home my cider in gallon jugs last year, but had to settle for UV-treated
    juice as a result. For this year, I've found a local cider mill that's willing to just fill my
    carboy direc...

    Came out to slightly under 1.000. I couldn't tell exactly for sure because my wine thief went
    all the way in and was stopped by the neck of the carboy, but hadn't hit the bottom yet. I made
    the mistak...

    I just finished a batch using S-04, and the smell was only really bad for 2, maybe 3 days (had
    it in the basement where SWMBO has her sewing room, and she almost made me move it back out to

    So there's no need to get it off the lees when fermentation is "complete?" I thought leaving it

    My first cider is happily bubbling away in my 6 Gal. glass carboy at the moment, and I'm
    scheming on what my next steps will be once it dies down. My kit also included a 6.5-7 Gal.

    OK, guess I'm not in trouble yet then... I opened it up and took a few hydrometer readings. SG
    is actually a tad HIGHER than the 1.060 I measured just before pitching 3 days ago. All I can
    figure is t...

    Hey guys,Well, I'm coming up on 72 hours (about 2 hours to go), and it still hasn't "taken off"
    - just a ring of tiny bubbles about 4-5" in diameter in the center of the surface. I'll take a
