Thanks for the post you guys! I was worried! My first batch took 2 weeks. I had 6 gallons of apple juice from Costco, added 2 pounds of dark brown sugar. I added a cup of dark brown sugar before I bottled then and 6 gallons went quick. Everyone liked it.
Then I just did one the same way but with light brown sugar and it's cooler this time of the year. Does that make a deference? Because it's a bit sour.
