    Based on your post history it looks like you're trying to go commercial. HBT is a homebrew
    forum, you'll have better luck asking questions over at probrewer.com which is commercially
    oriented. Try Pal...

    Never heard of a fortified flor cider, shouldn't be to difficult though.A lower ABV, say,
    14-15% would probably allow for flor to develop.

    Yes, it's called Pommeau, traditionally from the cider regions of northern France. A few
    commercial examples exist in the US as well.Made one a few years ago with a combination of
    bittersweets and sha...

    after 72 hours your hydrometer doesn't show any sign of fermentation then simply re-pitch more

    Priming a dry cider for carbonation is very easy.Here's a quick rundown (it's for beer, but a
    dry cider is the same process)

    Nothing to do with pectic enzyme. As mentioned above, it's likely just CO2 degassing or the
    last breaths of fermentation.

    Yup, looks like a classic surface pellicle. Is the cider still fermenting? You'd be well served
    to rack this into a smaller carboy for aging to limit headspace and minimize air-cider contact
    since pel...

    ^^^ this guy gets it! HahahaI went to Watkins Glen in Oct. So I stopped by 5 min. after they
