I added cherries to a batch of cider today. I hadn’t seen a single bubble in over a week. No joke, within 5 minutes of me resealing the fermenter, it was bubbling like mad! How is that even possible?

Even if the yeast started on the cherries immediately, wouldn’t some pressure have to have built up to fill the headspace again?
