So i have this cider brewin the last few days from store bought juice and airlock activity seems to have stopped a few times now until i adjust the bung and knock it a bit. Anyone know something about this?

Oh and it seems to have been from after i topped up the juice after foaming went down

What is the current gravity reading? What was the starting gravity reading? What yeast are you using?

Its bubbling every 4 or 5 seconds atm. And when it started it was very irratic bubbling and water level in there was all weird so swapped it for another
