What yeast are you using?
Like a Hef or something?

White champagne yeast. I forget the exact kind but it said it was enough for 6 gallons. We started te yeast before we started so it had some time to get active. It was fresh cider directly from the orchard. 60 bucks for 10 gallons. Haha. It would have been a bit cheaper if we brought our own containers.

If my buddy contained the yeast activity and this turns out good, well be making more.

The solid brown specks are cinnamon, and the one in the back has pears in it

I'm wishing I left that much head room in my apfelwein. I filled (According to recipe) up to the neck, and have got a decent bit of krausen in my airlock after about 6 hours. I used Vintner’s Harvest CL23 yeast in mine, and the juice was just treetop no additive.

To the OP, about what temp are you fermenting at? Mine is around 75* (trying to get lower with wet towels, and looking for a used freezer on CL).

Itwas still upstairs so 70-72 degrees. 65 downstairs. What are good temps for cider?

cooler is better generally, it will be happier at 65 degrees.

I get big heads of krausen a lot with fresh cider. Usually not so much with ale yeast, but adding honey or malt can make it get a big head. I
