ok, is my understanding of bulk aging that the benefit is mostly clearing and that there isn't much difference after that? my second batch appears to have completed fermentation, SG is just under 1.000, no visible gas production and the baffle / air lock doo hickey, actually dropped slightly from the airlock cap which tells me that there isn't enough pressure to keep it up anymore. it's already crystal clear after an initial racking and if it proves stable over the next week or two I'd like to consider bottling.
Q #2, anyone use carb tabs in cyder? or is this more of my heresy?
