Okay. I will do that. I am off for a couple days coming up. It's not totally clear, but it has
cleared nicely. I wanted to leave it until it was completely clear. Really, I want to add the

I believe the starting was about 1.124. No nutrient, in a full 6 gallon carboy. I didn't test
it because I don't want to risk contamination. I could sterilize the wine thief and check it

Hello Homebrew Talk! I hope you all have been well over the last two years. When last e met, I

Yeah, I NEVER put the cider in the fridge after campden, just add it, put the lid on, 24 more
