    Ok now the airlock has fallen and has stayed. It's still extremely sweet. Any advice? I'm in no rush. I was thinking about just waiting until the weather gets warmer and seeing if it picks back up.

    Maybe so. I don't see any bubbles yet but the airlock is still at full height so it must still have pressure. If it had fallen and stayed I would be more worried.

    Hmmmmm. I guess I would have no way of knowing that. The label only stated that is was 100% pure apple cider and that it was heat pastuerized.
