Cider foam

I'm in my 2nd batch of cider, the first one was pure cider juice from a farm, and it produced the krausen ring, i figured thats because it was fresh cider, though i did pasteurize it.

the 2nd one is pasteurized cider/juice (again from a farm) and its doing the same thing, the foam ring. in the first experiment i used lalvin 71b-1122 and in the second batch i used ec-1118.

I read that most folk making hard cider never get the krausen ring, so now i'm wondering, what is going on?

I've had some pretty gnarley rings left over in my cider ferments. I think its dependent on the yeast strain you use - I like nottingham, and it always leaves a big ring behind. For fruit ciders I often use D47, and get no ring - despite the same unfermented cider going into the notty and d47 batches.
