I'll salt the parking lot for ya this time

Also, if folks want, I can save all used bottles from the tasting room between now and then for people to pick up and take home. These are 750ml (25 bottles per 5 gallon batch) dark green champagne bottles which take a standard crown and come in case boxes for easy storage and transport. Makes bottling a breeze, totally free, PM me if interested.

So what are the attendees bringing?


All I have ready from last fall is Apple-cinn sparking dry cider, Apple-Pom sparkling dry cider and still Apple-Jack.

Wow, I hope I can make it.
If we are free I'll be bringing "Johnny Jump Up" and "Elderberry Cider"
The Elderberry is a little young and I have not tried it yet, but the 24th is a couple of weeks away, who knows.

March 24th is Palm Sunday.
We will be away visiting her mother and some other relatives.

So I won't be able to attend this year.

~2 week reminder!

Still time to bottle that batch you've been working on and get it carbed up in time.

Caramel Apple will not be making the trip, but I'm working on a spiced cider with a hint of orange. If the weather is good I will try to be there with a few bottles.

So it looks like I will be bringing three 750 ML bottles of Spiced Orange with me. Are we supposed to label or tag the bottles in any certain way? Just wondering, based on the pic I saw at the link below:

Looks like I'm not going to make the gathering. Unfotunately, I needed to swap around some days off to accomodate my upcoming vacation. Hope everyone has a good time. Bellwether is a fun place a LeBreton a great host.
