A mammoth session today, started at 9am and finished at around 6.30pm! The reason for this was 27 gallons pulped and pressed, a record for a single batch, and we’ve still a large crate of apples left to do (next week)!
That takes this year’s production to 86 gallons, which should keep the pub (news coming soon on that one) and next year’s beer festivals in stock.
A new brew for this batch is a gallon of apple and honey (known as cyzer apparently) which should be interesting. The cider equivalent of mead.
A result of today’s mammoth pulping and pressing is that both Adam and I are broken now!
