    That's very nice! The pomace you're getting is a bit finer than I get out of my stainless steel
    crusher, though not quite as fine as what I get when I pass that crushed apple through the
    garbage dispo...

    The black knob on the bottom adjusts the chute that guides the "pomace" (if you can call it
    that as coarse as it is). It can scoot forward or backward, or even removed to let the pomace
    fall straight ...

    Thanks for the responses - what apple mill do you guys recommend, with a Lancman bladder press
    in mind?The crusher is made for apples. It's by a company in New York called Raw Rutes ( As
    far as I can...

    Hey all - My current cider setup includes a crusher (this one) which I've motorized. I pass the
    crushed apple through a garbage disposal and into a homemade basket press (similar to this one,
    though I...

    Hm. Just going off of what I've read, I have no experience with this application of pectinase
    so I can't say for sure. Guess there's really only one way to find out... time for a day of
    press experime...

    Yeah, the perfect pH is the pH you started with on the one you love :)Seriously though, the
    general "rule" is in the range of 3.1-3.5. Experiment, and take good notes.If it's too acidic
    you might want...

    Thanks... but... It sounds to me like you're talking about adding pectinase after pressing for
    clarifying - and I totally agree with your process if that's the case (that's what I usually
    do).In this ...

    This is my first time using pectic enzyme before pressing - I'm hoping it'll increase my yield.
    The process I expected to follow was to mill, add pectic enzyme, let sit at 65F for 24 hours,
    then press...

    Good stuff, thanks everyone! Beeswax it is... a rancid press sounds nasty.

    atoughgram - I think you've doubled your potassium sorbate. Common pitch rate is more like 0.5
    tsp/gal (I think anyway!)I'd give it a full 24 hours after pitching potassium sorbate and
    Campden before ...
