    It is not required for hard cider. There are no human pathogens that can survive living in
    alcohol. I'm a commercial hard cider maker. There are no craft cider producers that I know of
    that pastuerize...

    What size/types of tanks do you plan on using? IBC or Stainless for your ferment.
