Also, there is no need to boil the juice, unless you want apple jelly.
If you are using fresh pressed juice, you can treat it with camden tablets 24 hours before pitching the yeast.
If you are using store bought juices, just throw them in a sanitized fermenter, throw in the sugar and pitch the yeast.
