I want to bottle a cider right off primary to maintain its current flavor/ sweetness. I only started it last Saturday, but it has nice flavor and aftertaste. I would like to carb it using Cooper's drops, and since it will still have some suspended yeast and more than likely some unfermented sugar, I want to stove-top pasteurize. I have searched and can't find anything on stove-top method with cooper's drops in the bottles. Is this possible? I don't see any reason it wouldn't work, I'm just looking for opinions or warnings if anyone has tried this and it didn't work.
But, for now, here is the cider currently at 1.017 with a great apple taste and a hint of honey-like flavor. It's also got that slight warm (what I think of it as) bit (taste/feeling, not bite) right after a sip that lets you know there's alcohol in it. It started at about 1.054 with a small amount of added sugar. I then added more (the proper measurement is known as "whatever was left in the bag") and didn't get another reading.
note: despite what your cat tells you, the purple packet of treats is not advised for a brewing additive
