First batch of Woodley Sider for 2018 pulped and pressed and ready for some yeast in a couple of days. Bumper collection of apples from outside of Woodley, meaning the first batch (done in two phases) has produced 22 gallons of apple juice!!!
As for the %age abv, they are between 6.6% and 6.8% which is pretty good for the first batch, usually a bit lower than that for the first batch of the season.
Now got to do a visit to the local pig farmer with 11 bags of pulped apple!
