The fermentation of the Binfield Beaut is complete, just racked it off and will leave for a couple of weeks to settle and then it’s bottling time…. Had a sneaky taste and it’s pretty nice, certainly a different taste from the other Woodley Sider brews!
A Happy New Year from all of us at Woodley Sider.
Overindulged this Christmas and on a detox? Studies have shown that detoxing for a week or a even a month don’t actually do yourself much good, so don’t bother and get yourself some Woodley Sider and carry on drinking (responsibly of course, i.e. not at work!)…
There is still plenty of Woodley Sider available from 2011’s production and even some still in the fermentation stage (the Binfield special).
New page added to the menu above with the current selection of T-Shirt designs available.
More designs coming soon…. ish!

Label images added to the gallery!
139 bottles all labelled up, a number of variations for all the different alcohol volumes and flavour combinations. Also created spreadsheet detailing what i’ve got so easier to manage.
The last batch of apples (acquired from a source in Binfield) have been crushed & pressed and will be ready for yeast addition in a couple of days. This special edition version of Woodley Sider will be given the name ‘Binfield Beaut’ which for those wine buffs out there and local to the area will hopefully get the naming connection!?
Anyone want some Woodley Sider for drinking this Christmas then best to get your orders in soon as they should be left to settle for at least a week following transportation.
Also available are some Woodley Sider t-shirts, ideal Christmas presents for those Woodley Sider lovers 😉
Use the contact us link on the menu to get in touch and I can provide a list of what is available and costs.
Got a bit of bottling to do now….. 27 gallons (approx. 186 litres) is in need of bottling, eek!!! Should keep me busy next week, assuming I don’t manage to get a new assignment at work!
Got to work out what sized receptacles to use (combos of 10ltr bag-in-box, 5ltr bag-in-box, 500ml bottles, and 330ml bottles) – Krypton factor time!!! 🙂
Phase 1 – removal of labels from empty bottles (recycling 500ml beer bottles) – complete!
Phase 2 – sterilisation of 48 bottles, now drying…. 16 left for sterilising, once the 48 have dried. Still got a load of green bottles (75cl) that require cleaning, plus a delivery due of 60 330ml bottles for the limited edition mixed flavours that have been concocted this year, which will also need sterilising!
Phase 3 – Bottling and capping.
Phase 4 – Labeling (assuming I can remember what batch is in each bottle 😉 )
