    Not sure on that one. Technically cider will ferment until the sugars are spent. However, will the cider spoil if fermenting too long. Are you using a bucket. Provided the top of the bucket fills with CO2 that will prevent the fruit oxidising. If your bucket had an air lock, that might be better.

    To be honest new territory. lets know how you get on.

    Air Lock, Bubbler - all good. I've not got round to putting airlocks on my fermenters. My local store does not stock the glands. All best.
