Im new to brewing too and have never done this process but id make sure your plastic bottles dont melt at 190 degrees. otherwise you could have a huge problem on your hands......

Can you use swing top style bottles when using this pasteurization process? like grolsch bottles or bottles purchased at ikea or other stores. or will the pressure be too great and the tops will pop?

Earlier in the thread, someone shared about how they used Grolsch style bottles. Sorry I don't remember the details, you'll have to search. Also, about the IKEA bottles, make sure they are for carbonated beverages. Wine bottles (except for sparkling wine bottles) aren't made for carbonated beverages, they'll break.

Thanks. I'll look for the thread on grolsch bottles. And thanks for the heads up about carbonated bottles. Maybe I'll try to get my hands on some martinellis sparkling apple cider bottles.

I don't have any questions since I just read 20+ pages of this thread, but I just wanted to say thank you! I can't believe you're still here, replying, and answering questions.

I'm going to be making my first batch of cider soon, I plan on taking pictures and posting results. Thanks again, tons of useful info here

How would I do this with champagne bottles? Can the neck stick out of the water with no lid? Maybe for longer time?

I've never tried pasteurizing with champagne bottles, so can't give you direct experience but I think if you experimented with time you should be able to do it. Champagne bottles are quite heavy duty.

Try it with one bottle at a time first, and I think your idea of lengthening the time is good. Don't over carb or put another way, err on the side of under carbing. As you open the bottles to enjoy your cider, keep an eye out for signs that you didn't kill the yeast, like excessive carbonation or caps/corks getting blown.
