I made my one and only cider two winters ago. Let it age a good 4 months before drinking. People seemed to enjoy it though it was a little tart for my taste.
Had a question about clearing. So I know you want the cider to fully ferment out. 4 weeks or longer is not out of the question. Then I know you typically want it to sit a few months to clear/age. Can you move the clearing process along by adding some fining agents and then get to the finish product sooner? Can you go from press to glass in 6-8 weeks?
