I made two 1-gallon batches of cider about 2 weeks ago from unfiltered apple juice from the store. And in one of them, I notice these little worm-shaped things floating around.
Now what can these be? I am not completely sure that they are worms, but that was the first thing I thought of. They don't appear to be squiggling but it is hard to tell; bubbles from fermentation are slowly moving things around. Most of them look like little brown worms, but they don't look all the same (some just look broken into pieces).
I only notice them in my second batch, which I felt I had done a much better job sanitizing things. Other things in the cider are honey and ground spices. Could it be some yeast sediment mixed with spices floating?
Scared and confused,
