Arrow of light or just arrow, or how about 3 fingers in ya brews? Like that one?
Kinda Like the three fingers in ya brews lol
Ok back to the actual cider it's been sitting in the secondary for 6 weeks now still cloudy has hell! I put some geltain in it Tonight to try to clear it, other the cold shocking it any other suggestions to help clear it? Nearset home brew store is over 45 min away and I would like to bottle some time this weekend.

Bottle and drink some cloudy, won't hurt; it's cider. You can tell everyone it proves it's natural. You would drink the juice cloudy, so why not the fermented product too.
Add pectic enzyme to the rest of the batch to clear it.
Geltain helped a little, said the hell with it and bottled. It's slowly clearing in the bottels reserved 5 galons to a carboy for expirmantal purposes. Did some with honey in the bottel and some prespiced or mulled in the bottels as well.
Ok Heres the final tally. 76 1.5 liter wine bottles straight cider. 24 with honey in the bottle 12 with a pre spiced mix, note on that I used a little to much ginger but it'll warm you up on a cold day, 12 with Spice and honey mix. 100 beer bottels of various mixes of the above. 3 weekends picking and pressing, 20 pounds honey, 6 pounds rasins. 4 weeks in primary (a 55 gallon plastic tomatoe paste drum from work) 6 weeks in secondary, One day santiseing bottles and equipment. one hecktic sunday to bottle it all! If you realy want to know the floor corker was a real good investment! 7 packets champage yeast forgot the brand have it at the buddies house we used his heated garage for the fementaion. Oh almost forgot 6 and 1/2 bottles of apple jack from the five gallons reserverd froze and skimed multiple times.
