I've been scared of aging in better bottles due to potential oxygen issues. How long is too long to let it sit in these?

Is there any need to pasteurize if I'm not carbing?

It isn't essential. Some people do it to ensure that they don't have a problem with acetobacter, but if your sanitation was good it's doubtful you'll have a problem.

I just bottled a batch that was on the yeast in a better bottle for almost 6 months. From what I've read, I have nothing to worry about. I'm just going to consider the better bottle / oxygen issue a bogeyman until I experience otherwise.

Without looking through the entire thread, and after a quick search not finding the answer

Does anyone have the starting gravity for this Apfelwein following Edworts recipe exactly? Treetop and everything...

I ask because mines now at 5 months or so, and i kegged it for new years, but would like to be able to put down a ABV on the tap, so people cant say i didnt warn them

Mine sat on the yeast in the primary carboy for 5 months until i kegged it today, it definately has the apple kick coming back to it and is pretty potent...plan on serving it unsweetened and just have a bowl of sugar cubes next to the tap for those that want to go wild with the sugar.

Hello everyone. I'm getting ready to try my first cider and settled on this recipe based on a recommendation at my LHBS (http://www.thebrewmentor.com/)

I will want the final result to be somewhat sweet. I already have the suggested yeast and sugar from the first page of this thread. Can someone point me to info about how to sweeten this recipe? Thanks!

Add your sugar to the brew after it's hit fg to taste, lots of people back sweeten with apple juice concentrate. If you want a still brew, bottle pasteurize immediately after sweetening and bottling.

If you want a fizzy brew, then fill a plastic "tester" bottle with your brew. Once it's got the pressure you want, pasteurize the rest of the batch to halt the re-fermentation from the back sweetening.
