Default Pasturized Apple Juice for Cider?

In an attempt to make my first cider I used Pasturized Apple Juice, some brown sugar, honey and Muntons Yeast..... any thoughts on the Pasturized Juice? Will it work?

Thanks

Shamu

Pasteurized juice will work fine- what you DON'T want is anything is preservatives in it- potassium sorbate, for example.

Will vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in the juice have any negative impact on fermentation?
Thanks!

Once again...Man Yooper has tact!!!

I don't. It is pasteurized, nothing to do with where cows graze.

I hope to do this soon too!(cider)

I made a starter with pure juice, then when the colony was going good and strong, added that to 3 gallons of cider which had sorbate in it. After a day, the whole thing was bubbling along nicely.
