    So idk if this will end up being helpful to anyone or not, but I figured I'd update the thread
    with my progress on this batch and some general conclusions about trying to ferment cider
    containing pota...

    Well, I added a total of about 2.5 packs of Safale S-04 yeast to the cider. That got me to a
    "glug" about every 10 seconds a few days ago. It's slowed back down to about 13 seconds now, so
    when I get ...

    No worries, but yeah I have a general sense of how it works. From what I understand, the p-sorb
    binds to the cell wall of the yeast, creating a physical barrier that prevents budding. So my
    thought wa...

    Ok thanks guys; I appreciate the info! I didn't think it could stay that yeasty that long, lol;
    I guess it must be because it was home-pressed and there was WAY more sediment than in the
    previous batc...

    Hey All - I've had a gallon of cider sitting in secondary for quite a while...I stupidly didn't
    write down when I started it and then got too busy w/ grad school and lost track, but it's been
    at least...

    Lol thanks for the interest guys. Yah I've had a couple in the past few days and did
    essentially what Mark said and it works out fine. It has just a slightly acidid/vinegar finish
    that I wish wasn't t...

    They were good drinking from a glass, but not from a bottle? That is why you should drink from
    a glass and not a bottle.Lol yah, I just mean that once you pour it and some of the carb
    bubbles off, it'...

    Thanks for the thoughts guys. The first one was cold, but the other couple I opened after that
    to see if it was a fluke were warm...I ended up taking them out of the freezer just before they
    would hav...

    Hey All - With Spring semester starting I procrastinated on pasteurizing my first "real" (did a
    couple quickie batches in between) batch of cider...I finally got around to it today, but when
    I decided...
