While ageing my cider in a carboy, I saw a very thin transparent white film on top of the
cider. It broke apart & sank at the slightest disturbance. Fearing the beginning of a
lacto-infection, I drew ...

I'm sure that I don't have a perfect seal on my lid since I had to add a wooden collar to hold

had been sitting outside for quite a while before it was given to me. The second one was my
