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?
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?
I found the answer is no.
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.
