    What do you guys think if I backsweeten my cider with 2 cans of concentrate after having crash
    cooled it in a keg? I'd just dump in and mix up the concentrate, no sorbate or sulfite. The
    temp would be...

    Well the cider I've got going is doing well. I've been wondering about pasteurizing though. How
    much alcohol is lost doing that? And does it affect the flavor at all? I would be using a plate
    chiller.

    juice that's made from concentrate?

  • Posted in thread: sorbate after campden? on 03-01-2012 at 01:17 AM
    I have a gallon of some cherry-vanilla mead on which I would like to stop fermentation. I

    Personally, I don't find store bought juice to turn into ANYTHING remotely good at all. Apple

    Awesome, I'll give it a try. Thanks to all, for the advice.

    Ok. I'm going to give it another go then and see what happens. How soon do I need to rack it
    after activity stops during primary? Can I let it sit a while on the lees?

    I'm sure the guys at your brew shop are great, but I think that taking their opinion of your
    cider as scientific proof of infection is probably a little naive on your part....especially
