I read that this might be a preservative. It does say that it's been pasteurized.
On the ingredients it does say "May contain sulfites."

This juice is real cheap 50% off right now. You think I should buy some and try it out?

I have a bit of a problem with companies that don't know what is in their products. But, sulfites tend to lose their ability to kill and you could probably ferment it successfully.

OK,
maybe I can ferment a half gallon and if it works, add the rest and away we go.

Right- that should be ok. Sorbate, though, if it's listed will not disapate and will not allow the juice to ferment. Sulfite is probably all right.
