I pitched white labs english cider yeast 4 or 5 weeks ago.last week i took a gravity reading and it was 1.002 and there seemed to be no activity from the yeast for days.the cider was clear as could be.i tasted the sample i took the gravity reading from and everything seemed fine.A few days later i looked at it and it has airlock activity again and got very cloudy and dark.Is this normal or do i have a problem on my hands? :oops:
I don’t do a lot of ciders but my guess (since I have had this happen with beer) is when you took a sample you kicked yeast back up into the cider. The bubbles are most likely Co2 being blown off. It should settle back down in a day or two. Everything should be fine.
