I started a straight cider yesterday (1 gallon Whole Foods apple juice & Wyeast British Ale yeast). I aerated before pitching the yeast, but I'm not certain if I should continue aerating daily until my 1/3 sugar break. I was given that advice for my first cyser, but I'm not sure if the same applies for a cider.

Excellent. Is this math correct? the 1/3 sugar break of a 1.057 must is 1.038? (I teach science, not math) And at the point I stop aerating?

My grandfather always says "close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades", but I'll take it with my math as well...
