I have just started my first batch of cider today! I used 6 gallons of Louisburg cider (pasturized, but no preservatives) bought at my local HEB grocery store. I sanitized everything, poured in the cider, and added 1 Tbsp of pectic enzyme (1/2 tsp per gallon). I'm letting it sit for 24 hours and then pitching my yeast tomorrow. I'll be using Lalvin D47 yeast. I'm keeping it simple with this batch as it is my first. I'll use GoFerm to rehydrate the yeast, then Fermaid O for yeast nutrition added using the TOSNA 2.0 schedule. I'm going to take a gravity measurement before pitching and will add brown sugar if it looks like it needs it. Since I have read that it is OK to let cider sit on the lees for up to 6 months I will probably only use primary fermentation and bulk-age in the same until kegging in time for Christmas.
