I bought a "Magnum Apple Cider Kit" 1.7Kg kit. Added 1 Kg of corn sugar + 300 gr brown sugar and oak chips. For the first 3 days it has been fermenting like crazy. Today (4th day) the fermentation seems to have stopped! Now I dont have a hydrometre but I opened the ferm. bin and there were no bubbles (like flat, nothing at all), the Temp. of the most is 20.5 C (so its ok), I had a sample and it tasted sweet. This is my first time ever and I have to say that over 4 days I opened it (the ferm. bin) 5 times!! I am sorry! I wanted to see what was going on in there!
Frist day I had a 5 cm krausen. Sencond day only nice white froth on top the most and I could hear a really strong fermentation going on. Third day I didnt open it, but the airlock was bubbling like crazy. Today (4th day) nothing.... no bubbles at all! Is it normal? The kit said the fermentation should take 7-8 days at temp. 20-28, but its only 4 days!
Any help? Idea?
