My gravity has held steady for the past month as I've been adding AJ concentrate to the fermenter to bring back some apple flavor and aroma. Still my samples are hazy and seem to also have miniscule bubbles throughout (in addition to the haze). A quick overnight crash cool did not help the haze.

I'm considering using pectinase since I believe I probably pasteurized at too high a temp (thermometer has since been adjusted). Could someone point me to a brand of pectinase that would be good for this application? Do the bubbles have any meaning?

Sometimes it takes months for cider to clear. I would rack to secondary and have some patience. You can always add the pectinase later if if doesn't clear. It's commonly used in makinig fruit wines, so any shop that sells winemaking supplies should have it, as do most of the online homebrew suppliers.

I wouldn't worry about the bubbles. If the gravity is stable there is no fermentation taking place.
