Roger I am tracking that part this is confusing with the vast amount of techniques. I will be writing down procedures and choices i make before just running into it. I have a quart freezing now to try the apple jack thing. If I just keep the other bottles in the fridge I should be ok from the info I have read. Thank you all for the help. Hopefully as i progress through this i can help others the same way.

Definitely check the carb before attempting to pasteurize! Too much pressure & they'll explode. Read the pasteurization sticky:

One thing to remember though, set your temp to 180*F NOT 190; Pappers himself later ammends the 190 temp to 180.

Right now I have them in the fridge. Think we will just use this batch as is out of the fridge and tweet the next 100 or so batches think i am hooked. Just found the hard lemonade threads. In the fridge there is no carb now. If i do pasteurize I will vent first but just going to drink the mistake and start over.
