Default Strawberry Cider

2.5 lbs organic berries

Washed and sanitized with Star San

Added to two gallons of cider in it secondary stage. One concern I have is I did not add any Campden tablets. I did add 1 tsp. of pectic enzyme. Should I be concerned?

I work at Baxter Healthcare in Cali. They put 500 ppm sodium hypochlorite solution in them (6.15% bleach with glacial acidic acid). It's harmless, unless you drink it I triple rinse the chit out of em, there perfect for small batches, like 3 gallons.

Probably not. Although I would recommend quartering the berries, more surface area that way. And you could have soaked the berries in a cheap vodka for 10 minutes, that would kill anything on them.

I freeze then thaw my berries then force them thru a funnel. The yeast makes fast work of them then. I add fruit to the primary with juice and camden. I add the yeast 24 hrs later.

I wanted to add the fruit a week later but wanted to have them in the juice with the camden. I'd be afraid to add Camden after a week of fermenting.
