How long can I expect my fermentation to continue, I have 5 gallons of cider, have added yeast nutrients and an energizer four pounds of light brown sugar and used the WLP775 ENGLISH CIDER YEAST. Will this go on for a couple weeks as I pitched the yeast on 10/22/13 and its still going pretty good. How slow will it need to be before I can say it’s ready to be racked.
Sense I have it in a bucket now I can’t see the bottom how thick can I expect the lees to be an how far above it will I need to be when I start siphoning? If I had some idea then I can make a mark on my auto siphon and not go beyond that. I appreciate all of the help I wouldn’t be able to do this unless I had some experienced people to guide me along on my new hobby.
