Au programme

We'll start with a brief overview and history of cidermaking, then head out to our garden to harvest apples from our dwarf trees. We'll wash the apples outside then prepare them for grinding in 'Roma' fruit grinder. As we're chopping and grinding apples we'll explain the different flavor types that are desirable in cider: sweet, bittersweet, sharp and bittersharp, and which types of apples provide these flavors. We'll then transfer the ground apples, or pomace, to the Weston cider press and show some tips we've learned on extracting the juice efficiently. We'll take a short break to taste a variety of local ciders, from sweet to dry. While pressing a second batch we'll discuss other options for cidermaking and the economics of making your own. We'll finish by pitching the yeast and attaching the airlock, and then explain the next steps: how long to ferment for different styles, how and when to bottle, and how to add carbonation for sparkling cider.

My husband Bill and I have spent the last 30 years learning many food and beverage self-sufficiency skills, including growing and preserving vegetables, making homebrew and cider, baking sourdough bread, making jam, and herbal products. We have been making hard cider since 2014, when we purchased a home cider press to utilize the abundance of apples produced by trees we planted on our land 20 years ago. Each fall we press and ferment between 8-15 gallons of cider to enjoy the following spring and summer.
