In my spiced cider, my orange zest and cloves are floating at the top--will they eventually fall to the bottom? Is it a real concern? I'm hoping to not transfer them to secondary--but worried they'll get sucked into my siphon hose

Some stuff floats, some sinks. The flavors will be transferred regardless, as a ferment is rather active and the cider will mix. You can always put some cheese cloth over the end of the siphon.

cheese cloth! genius! Thanks a ton, now i'm totally at ease with this batch

I'll be adding more spices to secondary for a week and then racking again settle 2 weeks, then bottle

i just hope its sweet enough to compete with my spices
