Alas, still nothing. The room temp is about 20C.

I think I'm going to bin the entire batch tonight. Thought about re-pitching but it has been 72 hours so far. I've lost hope. Any last minute suggestions? Anyone?

Make a starter and repitch. See if that gets it going

Lol, sorry, I was so distracted by "bad assed home made press" that I ignored your actual plea for help.

Now I need redeeming!

hah no worries.
So I have some 'activity'. brownish stuff collecting on top of the juice. I assume that means fermentation has kicked in. However, I haven't really seen many bubbles coming up through? Does that sounds like fermentation or a botched batch?

It's probably krausen forming. Can you post a picture?

Hi AppleJacker- I think you are right!

So yesterday I camehome from work and the house smells like a cidery (I suppose) and the cider was not only up into the air lock but also foaming out the top! The fermentation was incredible- non stop bubbles- it was like an eruption!
I quickly cleaned it up and added a blow off tube system- settled down a bit this morning but still fermenting!

What a relief!
