I only punched it down the first three days or so. Haven't touched it since. It will need to be
transfered to a couple of 1gal jugs soon, need the bucket for a batch of cherry I'm getting
ready to do ...

Well, it's been going for about a week now. Smelled absolutely horrendous the last time I poped

I will once it's down under 1.030 and I rack it off the fruit. It'll go into a couple of gallon

The closest to now I can get is Sunday.

Yeah, and I get to go pick more this weekend, the 100lbs was just what I could reach and was
