I'm wondering since cold crashing makes the yeast go dormant, if I were to bottle at a time where I wouldn't be around to monitor the bottles and pasteurize at the right time could I just put it in the fridge until I had some time, then let it warm to room temp and then pasteurize? Seems logical enough but I've never cold crashed before.

Mine sat for about 18 hours before I pasteurized and had no gushers but the carbonation wasn't consistent. Some are fully carbed but others are almost still. Not sure why

I don't have a scale yet either so I just eye ball it. The boxes of brown sugar I buy are a pound each so I just estimate. Half a pound, half a box etc. no it's not exact but it always comes out good and someone else's recipe won't be an exact match to your taste buds anyway.

This recipe possible to make without fresh pressed apples? I live in northwest florida and can't find any fresh cider. Plenty of store bought stuff though. Would it be possible to use store bought?

I did my first batch this spring with store bought one gallon jugs of apple cider. It came out great. Just try to get some that doesn't have any preservatives.

I am hoping to make apple cider this fall. I've got wine corks and bottles. I really don't want to commit to more bottling equipment. Can I bottle bubbly cider in wine cork
