Procedure

It doesn't get much simpler than this.  5 gallons of cider from a local orchard.  UV pasteurized and preservative free.  Pour it into a sanitized carboy along with a crushed campden tablet.  Wait 24 hours before pumping it with oxygen for 1 minute, pitching the yeast, and adding nutrient.  Rack to secondary after two weeks and let it sit until clear.
