You guys just use regular beer bottles or what?

Also
i know the recipe on page one says you can just bottle out of the primary, how many of you guys bulk age in secondary racking 3-4 times over a couple months or a year?

I use wine bottles because I like to make my cider off dry and still. However, many folks use beer bottles for their carbed versions.

I do age my ciders, but in bottles. I use all my carboys for wine that I also make. Racking will help to clarify cider just as it does wine if that was your question. Hope this helps!
