I generally degas 2-3 times a day for the first week. I use a slotted spoon and really whip it to a froth. At this point I'm looking to oxygenate it a bit more along with degassing. I'm also adding nutrient at day 0 (in initial must), then a day after the first sign of fermentation, about 1.5-2 days later and about 2-3 days after that. For melomels I punch down the fruit daily for the next week or two (say days 7-20, give or take). If there's no actual fruit (Cyser for example), I'm degassing every couple of days for the next week-10 days. Today is day 12 of my most recent cyser and I'm noticing less krausen, and a lot less foam when I degas. I'll probably do it once more in a couple of days then let it sit in primary for about 5-6 weeks total. After that I'll rack to secondary and let it start clearing.
