How long does your cider last? Since our cider is a raw product, refrigeration is a must. However, it will last 2-3 hours unrefrigerated, so long as it remains out of direct sunlight, just long enough for your car ride home.
So, does apple cider go bad? Technically no, but the cider will slowly transform into a more acidic-tasting beverage.
No, it doesn't need to be refrigerated. It is commonly recommended to store apple cider in a cool, dark cupboard with the lid tightly screwed on. Of course, you might prefer your cider cold, in which case it doesn't hurt to refrigerate it.
Pasteurized juice is a shelf-stable juice that is processed to store for two to three months. It is preserved in such a way that the liquid should not be kept in the fridge if it stays unopened. But once you open the can or sealed box of pasteurized apple juice, you should not keep it outside of the refrigerator.
