I'm a complete homebrew n00b and I need help answering a couple of questions.
I have pressed my garden apples into 2 gallons of juice. It is now is the shed in a 3 gallon bucket. My questions are..
- Is the excessive air space (headspace?) in the bucket a problem? If so, what should I do?
- I understand I need to leave the lid on loose until the natural fermentation dies down and I then add the airlock, is this correct?
- The kit came with some wine yeast. Should I use this or not and when does it go in if so?
