So I read in some threads on here that dishwasher could be used to pasturize cider. Well I ran 12 bottles through mine today and I'm wondering if it worked. I did notice some sediment formed after that wasn't there before. Was this free floating yeast dying? How can I tell if it worked? Sorry if I'm being a noob I just don't want bottle bombs.

Unfortunately, I think only time will tell. Open one every few days and if they are continuing to carbonate....get the in the fridge quickly or use the stove top method.

Let us know if it worked. It would be really convenient to know the results of this. Did you hit around 160 degrees or so, or are you not sure what temperature your dishwasher hits?

I bought a three dollar digital thermometer from eBay and ran the probe into the dishwasher. Ran it on various cycles to get best pasteurisation cycle. My intensive cycle, which supposedly used 70 C water peaked at about 50 C when full of 40 x 500mL bottles. Held over 40 C for at least an hour and some, the cycle ran for 2 hours 15 mins. This method gradually brings the bottles up to temperature so no explosions from temperature shock occurs. Holding at the lower temp for a longer period of time achieves pasteurisation.
Have done several successful batches (including the freight train carbing of the Caramel Apple Hard Cider recipe by UpstateMike) with only ever one bottle exploding - but the mess was easily contained and cleaned up, without interfering with the whole process.

Put a bottle in the sun and see if the cap distorts
