Default Score at Whole Foods

Hey folks,

I finally managed to score some FRESH cider without preservatives. The Whole Foods had some from a Georgia orchard (Mercier) today. I haven't seen it there before, so I imagine they just started pressing recently for the year. It was expensive in my opinion, $5.99 a gallon, but it is travelling over a hundred miles to get here, without preservatives.

That saves me a two-hour trip to Huntsville, or from shipping some in!

Anybody have a yeast recommendation for fermenting with sweet cider, rather than juice? I've used enough sweet mead yeast lately.

AND my local homebrew store had ONE vial of White Labs English Cider Yeast in stock. Today was a good day for cider!
