Open cans of frozen juice and add to ferment bucket
add nutrients
add Maltodextrin (optional)

add water to 5.5 gallons

you can add a sulfide to kill any bacteria as done in wine making, but I don't think it is required as this is a processed juice for commercial sale. if you do, let sit for 24 hours. If you used a sulfide, you will have to aerate your cider before bottling very aggressively for about 15 to 20 minutes to get the egg smell to dissipate.

Pitch yeast and let ferment until bubbles stop.

Rack to carboy to clear and finish out any further fermentation.

after 2 weeks, add 3/4 corn sugar and bottle.

Test for carbonation after 10 days, if it's good place in cold storage or pasteurize.

Age for 4 to 6 months
