Anyhow, you will still need campden to sterilize everything that touches the must, or at least the same sterilization that you would do for beer, and as an anti-oxidant at bottling time.
I'm doing the same thing with a 1 gallon batch of strong apfelwein we made from apples from a friend's tree - seemed like a lot of effort to have the bottles oxidize after a couple of glasses. The irony is, my wine is bottled in beer bottles, and my cider is bottled in wine bottles!
