Further update. Just took a mini swig when I racked it. It's pretty good!

I went a full 36 hours waiting for them to carb. I definitely could have gone more. When I drink them cold, they lose a lot of the carbonation.

I wonder why so many random times for carb. From 3 hours to 36.

Bottled today. If not carbed by bed time I'm gonna let it sit til the morning then run the dishwasher cycle on the way out the door.

Quick question. I'm going to bring a couple gallons of this with me out of town this weekend. I brewed it saturday. Could I bottle the 2 gallons I am going to take back into the plastic jugs that the juice came in? Seems easy and logical to do so if I could

I'm no cider expert but I don't see why not, so long as you're going to be keeping them cold. The yeast is still very much alive at bottling time for this recipe so it will keep fermenting away inside those plastic jugs unless you keep it cold. If you're going to be drinking it within a few days I don't think it would be a problem.

How do you take an accurate gravity reading of this stuff! So many bubbles rising up through the thief that it raises my hydrometer. I actually had a bunch form one big bubble under it!

Crazy to watch it ferment, not a lick of krausen but tons of tiny little bubbles.

Give the hydometer a good spin, like you would snap your fingers. That should do it.

I'm going to start a new batch of this tonight. My first turned out great, but this time I'll be using Safale US-05 instead of Nottingham and apple juice instead of fresh cider. Should be interesting to see the difference.

So I just decided to keg this stuff this am. Started at 1.066 and I kegged at 1.03.

How long will this keep in my fridge? Most of the research i've done seems to see this is still going to ferment out just much slower. Will it go vinegary or just slowly get more dry as time goes on?

Tried a bottle today. Wasn't a fan. It's not bad. It's just not good. Very tart tasting.
