    Question about amounts of of sorbate

    Hi Forum, I'm a newcomer to this forum and I have some experience brewing (10 batches of LME, various types of ale.) I've moved on to cider, as I have a friend who has a boutique winery and grows organic apples. We took some of his Grade B apples and pressed them into 300 liters of juice...
