Cindy, Of course fall is time for our regular grape harvest. That will be my main wine making activity this fall. However, I do plan to make some apple wine. I purchase fresh apple cider from our local orchard. I figure I'll make another 12 gallon batch this year. There should be loads of recipies on line. I would sulfite, even if pasturized for a day. Add yeast 2nd day. Add yeast nutrient during fermentation. After done fermenting, rack into secondary. Rack off sediment after several weeks. After fermentation is complete add sulfite and continue to rack/clear. Mine is perfectly clear... no filtering. This makes a real nice wine on a hot summer day.
Just a thought. When you mentioned fall, I think of apples after grapes.
Best of luck.
