So I've made a few batches of Apfelwein before, but never anything I'd really call a cider. For my first attempt I'd like to try an English-style cider.

What I have:

I'll try to flush the headspace with C02 - taste was fine (nothing too funky/sour, but it hadn't been aging that long) and smell was similar to Brett C/some sort of bug with prominent lactic acid and...

Crap. I racked it over to a glass carboy (much less headspace) 4 days ago - what should I do if the mold returns? And I know it's hard to say for sure without having actually seen it, but does it...

Quick update - I pitched the WLP665 with US-05 in primary, and after a fairly vigorous early ferment (kraeusen stayed up for around 3 weeks), it's fallen and a nice funky pellicle has formed. The...

Thanks for the input everyone - based on that I'll go ahead and pitch 665 with US-05 for the primary, leave it there for ~2 months, and then rack for long-term (10-12 month) aging. I'll be sure to...

WLP665 in Primary?

Anyone know if this blend is designed to be pitched in primary and then left on the lees (like Roselare) or if one would get better results pitching a clean yeast first and then using 665 to sour? My...
