I am going to try the apfelwein recipe from EdWort, but my girfriend couldn't find the right apple juice at Sams Club today so we are going to try using non filtered apple cider, not from concentrate. I thought it wouldn't make a difference until I noticed it had some preservatives added: Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Bonzoate.
I also want to substitute a wyeast smack pack of Ale yeast that I already have on hand.
My question is will the preservative effect the yeast interaction and subsequently affect the quality of the finished product?
Thanks in advance for you help.
