    Hello everyone, I picked up some fresh pressed cider yesterday from a local orchard and was
    planning on making a few different batches. I pitched the appropriate amount of campden in two
    of the batche...

    WHAT!?!? Don't toss it all! Go get a bar tender style bottle opener and start gently relieving
