On sept 30th, I started two batches of cider (My first time from the juice).
One was made with only Apple juice and, in the other, we added strawberries (not pressed) to the apple juice.
About 8 days ago, a white foam appeared on the batch with the strawberries. It was solid. The cider smells fine.
We got scared and decided to go forward with a first filtration.
Image 1 & 2 are what it looks like 7 days after 1st filtration.
My questions are:
- Is this Krausen
or did it just re-start fermenting .... 35 days later?
- Does Krausen
happen with cider? If so, should it happen? (My other batch didn't do it)
- When should I bottle my cider? Should I wait until it becomes clear like my other batch? (See image 3)
