    I've had cider that took 3 weeks to clear with pectic enzyme added to secondary.

    1 pack for 5 gal is fine. Rehydrate it first. Pectic enzyme and yeast nutrient can go in when

    boiling it fir...

    To my knowledge, have never had a batch of oxidised beer or mead, and I take no steps to "top
    off" .....or perhaps I HAVE had some oxidation and just happen to love the taste??? ;)My only
