Just got back from Wegmans. 3 quarts of apple juice just went up from $2.89 to $4.29.

However, I also saw that a gallon of Musslemans Cider at Walmart is $3.00 this week, down from $4.48.

Picked up 3 gallons in central Illinois back on Friday. 8 bucks a gallon, around 4 a half gallon. Had to get a little extra just to drink.

Apples did pretty good this year in NC, I guess...my LHBS pressed over 3 tons of apples and charged 5.99 per gallon (it was $5 if you pre-ordered it ahead of time...)
Packaged: Fruitcake Old Ale
Primary: 15 Min Pale Ale (Waimea hops), Unoriginal clone (hoppy session mead)
Secondary: Why do I keep this line here...?
Bulk Aging: Simple Cyser '15, Cocobochet, Wild Cider (2014 & 2015)
Planned: So many ideas, not enough time to brew them....

Where in WA is this? My bulk orders have currently been going to Skagit Fresh, but I'm always up for getting a bit of diversity. Although that is double what I'm paying now.

My cost is ~ $3.60/gallon.
but...this is the important part, previous poster is right, wholesale prices are up.
Seven years ago it was $5/bushel, last year was $7, this year......$9.00 a bushel fir cider apples.

Sure beats $.99 pund for grocery store apples though.
