I have had my cider in the secondary for 2 weeks now, after one week in the primary. It is still chugging away like crazy(1 bubble every 5-6 seconds). Should I be worried about this, it is in the garage at about 64-72 degrees constant. I want to bottle it soon as it is clearing up, or should I wait till it slown to about 1-2 bubbles per minute? Does anyone know what the FG usually is on a cider? I have my recipe on a previous post. I cant wait to try it.

Wait until it's down to 1 per minute. I've had FG's on cider as low as 0.995.
