bit of a newbie here and new to the forum. just had a quick question. how do small scale commercial cider producers (without a huge, expensive bottling line) force carb their cider when bottling? what type of equipment are they using?
second question. do counter pressure bottle fillers like the ones these guys sell (http://www.brouwland.com/en/
) only work if you are transferring pre-carbonated liquid to bottles, or will they actually add carbonation to a still cider as they fill the bottles?
(sorry it wont let me link to the direct page, but the ones I am referring to can be found under "bottling," "bottling machinery," then "counter pressure fillers").
