Yeah, I'll just have to make a trip up there sometime I guess. I'm gonna try the rest of my universal stoppers and just see if maybe the one I had in my hand at the time was just big or something.

I just bought 3 gallons of that Whole Foods unfiltered juice in the glass jugs and it was totally worth it. I can't get 1 gallon carboys at the LHBS for under $5 so $7 for a gallon of high quality juice plus a carboy is a deal. I bought a 3 gallon better bottle and emptied all three gallons into it w/ 1/2lb of extra light DME and champagne yeast, a little weaker than Apfelwein but should be along the same lines. I also bought 3 lbs of clover honey and now have a gallon of mead going in one of the glass jugs along w/ the 3 gallons of cider. Now its all waiting. I'll prob split the cider into the other 2 gallon jugs so I can experiment w/ additives too.

Any ideas on where to get a stopper for these from somewhere other than a mail order or LHBS? Home Depot?

So I'm thinking like a 3/4 - 1 inch OD tube might just fit right into the neck and use it as a blow off tube?

JohnnyC, did you do anything w/ the 3G? I've got one running for three weeks, and shows no signs of clearing... patience, being a virtue, is in short supply.

There's also a whole foods at 20th St & Pennsylvania Ave, up near the Parkway. I've got 5 gallons of this juice making the transformation into Apfelwein right now!

I used this for a batch of Apfelwine started in November, and it is still cloudy. Not like it was new, but certainly not anywhere near clear. I don't really mind since I generally make apfelwine for personal consumption and not for sharing, but I was considering using some sparkaloid to help clear it. Any thoughts?
