So when I set this site up I had linked in my site with the Woodley Sider FB page, however that link was using my personal FB account…. As a consequence and my recent deactivation of my personal FB account the majority of posts (which are still on my website, so all is not lost!) got removed from the FB page.
I’m reluctant to republish then and subsequently repost them to the FB page as it’ll just litter everyone’s timeline with old posts, but going forward all new posts should appear (utilising the Woodley Sider FB account, which is different to the page) and hopefully not disappear!
P.S. Bracknell Beer & Cider festival is on the 27th of May and Woodley Sider will be available!
Potentially last batch of the season pulped and pressed (although there are still a few apples on the tree, so maybe a small batch to come!), 9.5 gallons ready for some yeast in a few days.
Another 2 buckets pulped to go with the 8 pulped yesterday, all now pressed to produce 18.5 gallons (including 2 gallons of apple and pear) ready for some yeast in a couple of days.
Eight buckets (mix of 25 ltr and 30 ltr ones) of pulped apple ready for pressing tomorrow (includes a few pears as well). Bloody knackered now having done this after a ~13 mile walk (with dinner half way).
2nd batch of the year done, 5.5 gallons of a combo apple and pear sider, should be a tasty one!
Kept the pulp and re-hydrated with water to do a re-pressing tomorrow for (in theory) a lighter percentage version. Then it’ll be off down the local pig farm with the pulped apple/pear 🙂
Thanks as always to Adam for your help this morning.
10.5 gallons pulped, pressed and ready for some yeast in a couple of days. Thanks to Adam and Becci for their help, makes it so much easier!
Apples collected yesterday from Tadley all been through the scratter (so pulped) and ready for pressing tomorrow…. 8 bins worth of pulped apple (a combo of 25 and 30 ltr brewing bins so took a while!)
Apple harvest looks like it could be a good one this year, plenty of apples on our trees, a few weeks before they’ll be ready so that’s going to be my weekends sorted for a month or two!!!
