Cider bubbling away

Just a quick note to record that I put cider yeast in the fermenting bucket yesterday, and so we should transfer it to a demijohn sometime between September 17 and 20.

The cider was already fermenting away when I put the yeast in, which suggests that the Campden tablet failed to kill the natural yeast already on the apples. I'm relaxed about that, but I hope no "nasties" also eluded the Campden tablet. (Thought to self: next time stir.)

The important thing is to get this--and next weekend's batch--done before October 4 because I am going to Rome the next day for most of the rest of October.
