    A stop to vigorous fermentation after a couple weeks is pretty normal. Since yeast reproduction
    is going to be exponential during fermentation, it doesn't matter whether you're doing 1 gallon
    or 500. ...

    Yeah, I've heard about cold crashing to get the yeast to drop out. My problem is that my fridge
    won't really fit my 5 gallon Better Bottle.I'll trying racking to secondary to see if I can
    kick some ye...

    I've made a couple ~5g batches of Apfelwein-like cider, and I'm interested in figuring out how
    to make them taste less yeasty. For my first batch the taste was not overpowering, but it
    masked any appl...

    Will a secondary help it? or should I leave it in the primary?If you're going for longer than 4
    months, I'd go to a secondary. Since you're 2.5 weeks in, you have a while to contemplate it.

    This thread is approaching the length where it takes longer to read through it than it does to
    fully ferment a batch of Apfelwein!!I started my first batch shortly after reading the first
    few pages of...

    What you should not do:- Add the concentrate and then bottle. The yeast will ferment away all
    that delicious sugar inside your bottles, and they will explode.What you can do:1. Add Splenda
    to taste. A...

    Just a note that the OG in my experience has been dependent on the juice. Treetop is ~1.050,
    but Martinelli's seems to be a bit sweeter and as high as 1.058-1.059.

    I'm definitely going to give at least 3 additional weeks no matter what. I'm not worried about
    that. What I'd like to understand is this: what process is occurring during those 3 weeks that
    is changin...

    needs to occur for the cider to taste good.2. There may still be a lot of yeast in
