Well hopefully it all settles out. If not, just tell people you are storing a brain in your
fridge.That's what a co-worker told me. Do you think I could cold crash it to settle it? If so
what is the b...

There are a bunch of threads on whirlpooling methods. It depends on what type of equipment you

What is a cider stick?Cheap store bought juice is low in acids and oils because its meant to be
drank as is. I suggest adding an acid blend (you can do that now). If you back sweeten, even
