I don't get it, do you let it sit on the yeast cake for a year??No, it had long been racked off
the yeast cake into a secondary. (I can't remember how long it was in primary, somewhere
between 4 to 6 ...

You might get a bit of a lag (my cellar is at 58-62, and it'll take up to 72 hours or even more

expansion through the airlock but im getting worried. I used apple juice and maybe 1.5lbs brown
Posted in thread: Noobie question. Can I use apple juice from my juicer? on 01-07-2009 at 08:06 PM
