I was thinking this could be an advantage because it would allow you to pasteurize in bulk. Instead of hand-loading all of those bottles in and out of the pasteurizer, you could run the entire batch...

Right, of course.

What if someone did in-line pasteurizatoin, and then ran the hot cider into a sanitized keg. At that point, it could be force-carbed, and then bottled sparkling from the keg...

All I can say is: sounds interesting! Couldn't you do a tiered test with rosewater at bottling? I.e., put one drop in the first bottle, two drops in the second bottle, three drops in the third,...

I have been casual about letting cider sit on the lees. Perhaps I haven't run out of beginner's luck yet, but I have not had the yeast impart any noticeable off-flavors. This year I really pushed...

Right, I should have clarified that. I'd be OK if it returns to dry. I'm thinking along the lines of a dry apple champagne. In the past I have been gun-shy, and have pasteurized with residual...

I know this question has already been asked and answered somewhere in this huge thread. I just cannot find it, so I gotta ask again.

Ok, I think I'm setting myself up for a scolding here, but I need advice with a variation on the same question:
