Default Mason jars

Would it be safe to rack a 6 week old cider into mason jars with metal screw on lids.

Has the Final Gravity leveled out and not changed. If you are making flat cider and fermentaion is completely done, then I'm sure it will be fine.

I wouldn't do it. Why mason jars? You should rack into something with an airlock or something designed to handle pressure.

Rack into mason jars for immediate consumption. Outstanding glassware for cider.

Ok so it's ok to bottle in mason jars if consumed quickly. Would cold crashing them be the best things to slow down any possibilities of mason bombs. Thanks

I said immediate consumption, as in, used as a drinking glass and not a storage container. Again, they're not designed to hold positive pressure. It'll probably be just fine, especially cold, but just know it's not a great practice.

If you're doing a still, pasteurized cider with zero carbonation, I guess it would be a fun way to store them, or give as gifts. But like everyone else has said, using them if there's ANY carbonation in there is dangerous.

I'm not going to dissuade you if you want to use them for still stuff, you can buy wines and liquors, and pseudo 'shines, packaged in mason type jars in some liquor stores. But nothing bubbly.
