That's an option the time frame would work out well. They're both due to be racked at the same time

Just bottle pasteurized my Graham's English Cider. I was worried they were too carbonated to pasteurize as they were super carbonated after five days of backsweetening with two cans of aj concentrate. I managed to get them all pasteurized, but the bottom of one of the six packs fell out when carrying it into the house and three exploded.

Pasteurising..

A must?
Or optional?

A must if you are not fermenting til completion or backsweetening and bottling for carbonation. Not necessary if you're going to ferment til It's completely done and not backsweetening/carbonating in bottles. You could keep them in the fridge to stall further fermentation, but I usually keep mine in cases conditioning at room temp and just put a six pack here and there in the fridge.

+1. Only pasteurize if you are trying to get it to finish sweet. I let mine go all the way.

One month in primary and still having same issue. No gravity reading??? It went for a month with some bubbling. No real crazy action though. I am ready to rack but am wondering if I need to get it where it will read first.
Anyone know what I am doing wrong?
As a side note it does taste quite like cider.

When do you mix in the concentrate?

Gravity goes down with fermentation, not up.

But looking at your previous post, I think something must be wrong with your gear. What is the lowest/smallest reading on your hydrometer?
