+1 to this.
I was worried about making a sparkling cider at first, but than I did some reading and found that filling up a plastic soda bottle with cider I could tell when the pressure was building and knew when it was time to pasteurize vs just guessing. Some ciders carb up in a few days, mine took about two weeks.
Don't leave it up to guessing or it could get ugly quick.
