Mix all ingredients except the yeast into the primary, cover and let stand for 24 hours to dissipate SO2 from sulfite. Hydrate yeast in 1 cup water at 95-104 degrees for 5-10 minutes and then pitch into cider with vigorous stirring to aerate. Primary ferment for 5 days. Secondary ferment for 3 weeks. Prime and bottle as usual.
