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.
