Are you bottling or racking to a keg? And do you not concern yourself with the concentrate having sugars to ferment again?? I don't get it please explain again.

Thanks

I'd add 1 and taste it....then 1/2 and taste again. Don't get it too sweet....you can't take it out!

Gregg,
He is adding k-meta and k-sorbate to inhibit any yeast that are left. Threfore it will be a still cider. No yeast--No fermentation --No carbonation
