Will this only work with ale yeast? I have Lalvin K1-V116 to use in my cider. Anybody have any luck bad or good with wine yeasts?

The pasteurization method should work with any yeast, but I'd recommend against the 1116. I tried this on a couple batches and it was real bland and buttery. YMMV

CvilleKevin, I am interested in options. That is the one suggested by my LHBS. What is a good yeast to use?

S04, Notty and US05 are good dry ale yeasts. WLP005 is also good. Wyeast 3056, 3068, 3333, 1010, 3638 and WLP380 are good wheat yeasts

I was thinking of going with WLP005 originally. Looking at many of the recipies on here for Cider, many people use it...Maybe I will pick up a vial.

I use the White Labs Edinburgh with good results, also the California Ale WLP001 and dry Nottingham.

Pappers - First, Thank you for putting together the process on pasteurizing. I am very excited to try it out. How long does your cider usually sit in the primary before the SG gets to 1.014 - 1.010? Also, after the recommendations, I started looking at different yeast. I started looking at WLP002, do you think with 63 - 70% will be enough attenuation? If starting out with a SG of 1.050, FG will be 1.018 - 1.015. That puts ABV between 4.26 - 4.66% Sorry to be off topic. Again Thanks for all the help.

WLP002 is good, but so similar to Notty that its not worth the 5x price. All of the attenuation numbers are for beer wort. Just about any yeast will chew through all the cider sugars, given enough time. But the ale and wheat yeasts are easier to stop with some residual sugar

CvilleKevin - Thank you again for your responses. I have decided to do two batches. One with Notty and one with WLP005. Cause really can you have too much Cider??
Thanks again to both of you and Pappers

My ciders, which are simple and not very complex, take between 7 and 14 days to ferment to semi-dry. Four days ago, I bottled a batch at 1.008 and its a little too dry, perhaps. But its good to experiment.

As mentioned above, the attenuation rating of the ale yeasts doesn't mean anything for us when we make ciders - all of them will ferment the cider to dry.
