I am new to brewing and am doing a test cider right now. Mine started at. 072 and is down to .048 after 9 days. Plan to bottle at .035. I am a little concerned about it not getting down that far because i used a cup of washed belgian yeast from my last batch. However, the airlock is still bubbling every 3-4 seconds.

I drilled a lid and it is working great thus far.

As far as everyone has ever told me, if there's yeast that is alive, which there is (because you've dropped gravity already), it will continue to be alive until it runs out of sugar. Unless you kill it some other way (heat, chemicals, etc). Just might take longer

Be sure to pasteurize once you hit the carb level you're looking for. Otherwise kaboom
