Nope, ambient temps were around 72 deg F. Saflager worked just fine.

I read that to carbonate you need to prime and bottle then pasteurize. If I started with pasteurized juice do I still need to pasteurize them or can I just prime and bottle them then drink?

If you want a dry sparkling cider or you backsweeten with a non-fermentable sugar(lactose, splenda, stevia, xylitol), then you won't need to pasteurize.

For a sparkling cider sweetened with normal sugar or AJ you do need to pasteurize after bottle carbonating, see this thread for details

Well, this is a SWEET find.. I'm getting ready to do a "class" for the folks at work...
Mine will be simpler still, as they'll show up w/ juice, I'll dose them w/ yeast, then we'll talk about what to expect for their first shot.

The ginger sounds intriguing tho'...

Thanks!

I did my "class" last night. It was much fun, and I don't think that the guinea pigs minded it much, either.

I did a re-cap on my original post

My mantra is becoming "larger batches, bottle sooner, out of sight -- out of mind, walk away..."

Hmmm, apple-ginger, sounds interesting. I may have to try it.
