Default Potassium Sorbate

To combat potassium sorbate in commercial apple juice I've read that you can set a starter yeast and let it cultivate overnight then add to the juice and fermentation will continue (slightly slower than normal)

My question is, Can I just cultivate then starter yeast with a sugar water solution and add it to the juice?

Cheers

It's a bit of the long version and kinda specific to another persons situation (keep that in mind as you read it) ... but here's an explanation that includes tips on how to ferment a sorbated must (starts at about a quarter down the page) ...
