Was wondering if I need to condition in secondary or if I can do it in the bottle. Made a berry cider and it looks great but I want to get it off the remainder of the fruit particles. Can I continue to age it in a bottle rather than the carboy.

You can age in the bottle if the fermentation is complete. What is your current gravity?

Cider will age the same either way, but bulk aging allows for lessening the effects of temperature swings. You also have the advantage of clearing the cider and racking off the lees in a secondary vessel.

That's good. I'd like to get it off of the remaining trub from the primary transfer.
