    Once it has fermented it has a pretty decent alcohol content so that helps it not go bad. Of
    course the yeast could start eating itself but I have yet to experience that. I wouldn't worry
    too much abo...

    How has the cider worked out? I just started one today using a kilo of honey rather than sugar.

    I just started my first cider primary using honey and a black rock cider kit.I reckon a honey
