Default Apple Juice Preservatives inhibiting yeast?

Trying to brew apple cider. Pitched yeast on saturday and still nothing. Pulled an empty jug out of the trash and it shows potassium sorbate as a preservative which I assume is inhibiting the yeast. Can this be fixed? Or did I just waste lots of money and time? Help!
John

Yes, that will inhibit fermentation. You've still got apple juice.

Nothing you can do at this point, the stuff doesn't go away.

Where can I find preservative-free apple juice? The recipe I had said Wal-Mart but I didn't find any there. How will I know if it's preservative free?

All stores sell it... Look for the apple Juice with added vitamin C thats what they add as a preservative every store has preservative free apple juice (with Added Vitamin C) I check all the time Its on sale at my local store for a 1.03 a half gallon I buy the cheapest possible because all i do is get drunk with it and give it to friends

Ive made hundreds of gallons trust me the apple juice is out there
