The recipe doesn't say to use sorbate, is everyone having this problem?

Flavor was fantastic, some of the apple actually seemed to push through more than the first batch... But that's just sampling from primary to secondary to sit for 5 days on spices... Which turned out very good too...

Why does the syrup need to be made a day ahead of time?

Johnny, the recipe is for a carbonated and pasteurized beverage. That is why there is no sorbate.

Gents, I have made this 3 times now. As far as the caramel mixture goes I sit out the 3 cans of FAJC on the counter for an hour or so until it is melted in the can, I then start the caramel sauce, once that is reduced I add in the FAJC and bring back to boil for 5 min or so. Take it off the heat and sit in on a towel inside the fridge to bring it back down to room temp then add it in the secondary. I have not had any problems with it falling out of the mixture using this method. I think by adding in the FAJC it thins it out and mixes in better...Hope it helps!!

Sounds like a great idea, I'll try it when it's time to transfer. I'm only at day 3 in the primary.

Actually...the recipe does mention just adding Campden for still cider, it is in the section starting with 'OPTION'. I think something was left out in the excitement of sharing. It happens.

I think with this receipe because of the high sugar content if you want a still cider the campden tabs along with the pasteurization and stored cold should do it. You could add sorbate to insure it but I have made a super sweet cider before with none of the above other then pasteurized and had no problems.
