Default Cider and Yeast

Brewed a 3g batch of cider using cider from a local orchard(pasteurized) and WLP007 Dry English Ale yeast. Pitched yeast into cider with nothing else. Fermentation started in about 24 hrs. Just wondering if anyone else has done this and if the results were good.

Never used that yeast, but sounds like it should be good. What was your OG?

should be fine. You may want to experiment with your yeasts until you find one you like. I see a lot of people using champagne and safefall and TBH I cant stand those, but if they like it thats all that matters

If you like that yeast and find yourself looking to try other yeasts, check out the white labs cider yeast WLP775. The aroma of the apples stays, and it tastes really good. I know some others on this forum have tried it as well.
