This sounds like blow off country.

I use WLP 775 and very little head space needed.

Does it matter?
By law I have to have a 'winery' license to make 'hard cider'
This was a real bummer cause we wanted to have a 'hard cider' at the brewery.

Don't worry, if it goes bad you will have some good cider vinegar.

Have you tasted it to see if it's getting tart or acidic?
