How long do you keep the Granny Smiths in your secondary?

I just made this tonight. I didn't put any raisins in it though. I forgot to get some at the store and I was already making the cyser when I realized it. Is it a big deal not having the raisins? Can I add them in the morning? Or can I add them when I rack this onto the apples? Thx.

Based on the recipe for JAOM, I'd say that the raisins are nutrients for the yeast. It's safe to add the next day or even within 2 days. If you have yeast nutrient you can add that as well. In a pinch, you can also create your own by boiling some bread yeast.

This sounds interesting. Please let me know your thoughts on the final product. I may start a batch myself.

I fortunately cant add the raisins at all now. I left for vacation the next day for a week. The morning we left the airlock was already going nuts. I'm going to rack onto a few Granny Smiths when I get home. I will definitely let you know how it turns out.
