2 qts apple juice

2 lbs sugar
2 1/4 tsp acid blend
1/2 tsp pectic enzyme
1/4 tsp tannin
1 tsp nutrient
1 Camden tablet crushed
Red star cote des Blancs yeast
And potassium sorbate
So I'm at the stage of no yeast yet. The book I'm using seems to be in every brew shop, purple book winemakers recipe handbook. The directions were to immediately add the Camden tabs and pectic enzyme to the juice, then just add everything else except the yeast and potassium sorbate. Add the yeast after 24 hrs. Thanks for any help

Yes, add the yeast after 24 hours. Keep it in primary 5-7 days or so, then rack to a carboy with little headspace.
Hold the sorbate until a few days before bottling- months from now!
