Default First press of the season

So, this past Saturday we put together, and promptly started using our new apple press to start off the pressing season. We only had a short time but we picked up some seconds, gave them a good washing, and went to work.

We got the press so that we would have a little more control over what the cider tasted like prior to making our hard cider. The only problem is that we keep drinking the product....!!

Well, now the fun part will be coming up with a combination of apples that creates a fantastic finished product...the only problem is that we keep liking everything...!


Primary - AHB Chocolate Rasberry Stout, AHB Lawnmower Ale, BM's OktoberFAST, Nut Brown Ale
Secondary - None
Bottled - None
Kegged - Stout, Pilsner

Did you build the grinder? Do you have plans? It looks great. I have a press, but not the grinder. You need to keep all those friends away if you want to have a final product!

Before I learned to brew I was poor, sober and lonely. Now I am just poor.
