Do I want to have it done like champagne and have one of those machines that slowly turns the bottles, freeze the neck and extract the yeast? The last way sounds like the most expensive and takes the longest.
I think if I'm producing the forced carbonation seem like the way the go? Do you agree?
It seems to me the best process for you would be to go from fermentation tank, to filtration, to UV flash pasteurization, to carbonation and bottling.

The winemaker has the fermentation tank, So next I go to filtration? Can you give me an idea of what type of filtration machines may be some links or some names that I can do some research on, And then the same for the UV flash pasteurization?
I am already looking into a bright tank and carbonating stone and then there is a rolling bottling truck that can come in and bottled the cider because he has the proper equipment...
So I suppose all I need to research now is the filtration and I guess UV flash pasteurization? Is this a required step?

Perhaps the VIN-TIS Crossflow filtration unit.
