I'm trying to find a good cheap pasteurized apple juice to use for the next batch of hard cider. I live in the Richmond, VA area, and can't seem to find anything that's in a plastic bottle (dont need to pay for the glass), and costs less than 8 bucks.

Currently I'm using whole food's organic apple juice, which is great, but is kind of expensive.

Any recommendations? I'm going to go to the recommended juice's sites and check availability in my area.

Thanks.

I use the one from costco, but I forgot the brand. It is organic pasteurized juice. I have good results with it.

we have good luck with the one gallon jugs from target. target brand is called "market" something.... they are usually around 3 bucks and make a fine cider.

I've used both Indian Summer and Mussleman's with good results, they are both $3-4/gallon.
