Default Pasteurizing in a hot bath ?

I want to stop fermentation at +- 1.010 and pasteurize my cider but I'm afraid of the easy stove top method as I had bottle explode before. Has anyone ever tried leaving bottle in a hot bat using only hot water and leaving them in there for like an hour or 2 ?

Would it work ?

I doubt that it would get hot enough. My guess is that there would be too much heat transfer through the large surface area of the water.

You will find info on the net with tables for temperature and duration of pasteurisation. You have to bring the cider up to the right temperature for the right amount of time. If you can do that in a bathtub then no probs, you would need to add boiling water to get a high enough temperature.
