    Pectin during fermentation?

    How would you suggest I clear it if I'm pasteurizing and backsweetening with more juice?

    Pectin during fermentation?

    I pasteurize them once they are bubbly enough to my liking, but will pasteurizing with pectin enzyme affect the cider at all?

    Pectin during fermentation?

    Can I add pectin enzyme during fermentation to clear my pineapple cider? Also will I still be able to get natural carbonation when I backsweeten after using pectin enzyme or will all my yeast sink to the bottom also?

    Would pasteurizing make the hop flavor go bitter?

    How much hop time?

    Thankyou. I just noticed my last sentence was supposed to say after how many days should I pull the hops. But you answered my question. Thanks for the tip. I'll bottle tonight. I also do pasteurize. But do you think that'll make the hop flavor go bitter?

    When to use wine tannin?

    What stage of fermentation is best too add wine tannin to my cider. It will be around 11%ABV (high and dry) then I plan too age for about two months. But I will also want to back sweeten then bottle and pasteurize after aging.

    When to add malic acid

    Hey that's great if I can do it just before bottling, that was what I wasn't sure about. For now I'm gonna start with small amounts of malic acid and go by taste. And as far as the carbonation I'm wanting that to happen because I'm gonna pasteurize the bottles to kill the yeast.

    When to add malic acid

    I have read it helps bring back some of the fruit flavor and balance it without having to rely heavily on backsweetening. My cider is kind of flat.

    When to add malic acid

    How long before bottling should I add malic acid to my cider or when is it to late? I plan to bottle in 4 days. I have started with 3 gallons of honey crisp cider and added 3 pounds of dextros. Fermented for 2 weeks. All the sugar was eaten. I'm sitting at 11.2 percent. I will add a half gallon...
