OK, I just racked my cider from my Primary bucket to my secondary. It was in the Primary for about 2.5 weeks. My questions is this. Since this is the first time I have ever made cider, what is it supposed to look like after initial fermintation is complete? I didn't open the primary at all until today. What I have is a golden color liquid that smells kind of fruity and yeasty. Doesn't smell or look bad, just never seen this product before. Thanks for the help.
