    Silent, thanks! That is the press design I am going for long term but had not seen that
    particular video. That video clears up some questions I had about the welding.

    Thanks Everyone. The bread racks seem to be a good idea. I listened to Reverend Nat's 2013
    cidercon talk here and he specifically recommends these bakery trays only thing is, they are

    Is anyone else using a shop press as fruit press? I purchased a press over the weekend and I am

    like to repl...

    I have found myself switching to a lower attenuating yeast such a London ale when I desire a
    sweet cider. It cleans up nicely but leaves residual sweetness and preserves the apple flavor.

    Thanks all! I am going to try a combination of all. Yooper - with the FG's all ~ 1.00 do you
    think there is much work left for the yeast to complete? 10-4 on the volcano, I had that happen

    LeBreton, thank you! The ciders are all currently in seconday in which all of them have a small
    amount of lees in the bottom of the fermenter. I am going to try degassing the cider tonight.

    Could someone at least verify that my initial steps of metabisulfite and pectec enzyme where
