I just pitched my first batch of cider this weekend. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f32/appl...-juice-198444/
OG 1.060 White Labs English Cider Yeast WLP775
I may transfer this first batch to a secondary carboy by week two or maybe bottle and pasteurize in bottles (just noticed sticky) etc.
I am wondering if I can put a second batch directly on top of the fresh yeast cake left behind in the primary carboy?

Sure, you'll probably have a very strong fermentation from it...Pitching on top of yeast cakes is wonderful and its almost like making a 5 gallon yeast starter! The yeast count is so huge that fermentation kicks right up.
