I don't know what type of air-lock you are using, but try taking a piece of rubber tubing and putting it over the air-lock. Put the other end out of a cracked window or through some sort of hole in the house. (You could run it along the dryer vent, etc.) If you are crafty, you can use one tube through the wall with splitters and valves, so all the beers/wines/farts go outside. Works really well!

The problem I had with my Apfelwein was after about 3 weeks to a month it was clearing. So I took a reading thinking it would be done. 1.030!! I just spun the carboy from left to right a couple times, and within a few hours, the yeast was back in suspension, and krausen was forming. It tasted really good, but it was kinda sweet. I can't wait til its done!
