I am making a Pom Cider and the bubbler cap got taken off my cider, 2 days later it has stopped fermenting and is darkening in color. Is it done? Is is bad? Can I fix it?

Thanks ~~J

How long had it been fermenting before the cap got removed? I've never brewed a cider, but beer and mead both darken in color as the yeast fall out of suspension. Pull a sample and check the gravity and the flavor. It may be just fine.

    It had been 9 days when the lid was uncapped.

    bah your fine, I have left mine open the entire time before (probably not the best idea) and they have turned out fine. Commented Jan 25, 2011 at 16:51
