Hi all, I've got a strawberry/apple cider bottled up that was in my fridge until I could try stove-top pasteurizing tonight. I got my water up to about 130*F and I put my bottles in so they would come up to temp some until reaching 190*F like the sticky says. Once they got a little warm and the temp in the pot reached 150*F, they started fizzing in the bottle like crazy! Is this a normal thing or should I be worried?

That never happened to me. But I heat the water first, remove the heat and add the bottles. Just wondering did you pop one first and see how carbonated it was?

I used the pop bottle technique and decided they needed maybe one more night to carb. The next night though I didn't have time to try my hand at pasteurizing, so I stuck my few bottles in the fridge to halt the fermentation.
