comment Is this cider production method flawed?
@MildFuzz You wouldn't want to pasteurize with the yeast in the cider, but if you pasteurize before adding the yeast it should all be good. But heating the cider will take O2 out of suspension so be sure to stir like crazy to get it back in.

Well you will probably get some wild yeast if you don't pasteurize the cider but it probably won't be a huge deal. What might be more of an issue is if there is any other source of infection, like acetobacter, already on the apples. Then you'll get a whole bunch of vinegar.

comment Beeswax for bottle waxing
@Scott I've heated up beeswax for other purposes (candle making) and I'd definitely recommend a rice maker. It won't heat it too hot and it keeps it at the right temperature when it switches over to the 'warm' setting. It's REALLY hard to clean afterward though. I'm sure you could use beeswax but I don't think it would peal off as nicely as normal bottle wax.

comment Inward pressure when fermenting cider
good thing you used a balloon and not a normal airlock, think of all the water and outside air that would be getting sucked in right now!

If I were you, I'd celebrate my high mash efficiency and enjoy some 6% beer!
