I bought a gallon of straight apple juice (unfiltered and all) and thought I'd dump some yeast in to see what comes of it. Picked up a 3-pack of Cider House Select Premium Cider Yeast off amazon. It says it's suitable for 5-6 gallons. Since I'm making only a gallon, I figured I'd pitch about a 1/4 of the pack (along with a cup of table sugar) and maybe save some for next time. I put the cap on, shook it up a bit, and left it sit. It was about 73F when I pitched it (room temp of basement). 12 hours later, the airloc is only just starting to move down off the MAX line (maybe 1/4") . Is this stuff really this slow or should I go pitch the rest of the packet? I did end up proofing some of the yeast from the packet this afternoon and it took a good hour or two but it's got some froth developing (so might be OK).
