The Camden tablet will dramatically slow the oxidation. Last fall at our brew club's cider press, I had dosed my carboys with one tablet each. At the end of the day, all the carboys had brown cider...

It's so hard to know just why these batches aren't carbonating. So, going through several possibilities:
1) you used different caps or cappers on these batches and they aren't sealed

I use the same thing - orange ones for my 5's and 6's, smaller red ones for my 6.5. One hole gets a thermowell and my temp probe, and the other hole gets a blowoff tube at first, then an airlock. I...
