8:45 a.m. Airlock is bubbling about every 4 seconds. Opened the lid and surface is effervescing! Stirred the cider and tasted a tiny sip. Very apple-y and pretty sweet. Replaced lid and airlock started right back bubbling. Seems to be going well! Son is sick and staying home from school today. Have to put off trip to brew store. Hopefully, I can do that tomorrow. I’m anxious to get a good S.G. reading.
9:20 a.m. Airlock seems to be doing a smaller size of bubble, but it’s almost constant.
3:00 p.m. It’s alive! It’s aliiiiiiive!!! Very rhythmic bubbles at about 3 to 4 seconds…like a slow hearbeat. Showed my son how the siphon and bottle filler work. I had opened and dumped an old beer last night and saved the cap. My son enjoyed putting on and taking off that cap several times. He’s nine.
