Early January, froze a bushel or so of leftover apples and pressed them whole, pitched a wild yeast from a batch of wine from local grapes. Got about 3 gallons.

Damn, I searched for this one two months back. Decided to quit buying and drinking beer and go all cider this year. Been making about a gallon a week, starting around . . . . um . . . er . . . maybe March?
Estimate 23, so 23 + 23 = 46

It's been three weeks since I last posted so:
71 + 3 = 74

I've also made one gallon for Jack and started another last weekend. Does that count?

This year was a great year for apples in Portugal. I had so many apples in my trees I didn’t know what to do with them, we eat we give to the animals and still tons falling off and going bad so for the first time I though we’ll why not make some cider. I collected around 200kg of apples which resulted in about 80 90 liters 22 or 23 gallons give or take.
I still have some trees that give apples a bit later on so I may decide to make another batch later on.
so let’s say
22 gallons (if it doesn’t go bad ) lol

All up, about 10 gallons of assorted single apple cider and blends from an overabundance of apples. It is fun tasting the difference. Scared the trees will bienially crop and not produce much next year. Wish me luck!

172 + 10 = 182

Are you guys alcoholics or commercial producers? It will take me some effort to finish the amount I made this summer. Still having some last summer's cider left.
I have 34 liters = 9 US gallons = 7.5 Imperal gallons.
About time the entire world goes metric. There is only one liter!

I made 2 gallons last year, and we went through it in a few weeks. It was the first good cider I've made, so this year we dove in and have about 13 gallons to ferment. I'm going to share what I can, and drink a bunch myself, but no, I'm not an alcoholic.

2 gallons in 2021.

1 gallon is probably gonna get dumped (10 cloves is 9 too many)
1 gallon is enjoyable (because I learned my lesson and only did 1 clove)

I was going to do more, but I ended up adding honey and making cyser for my other two 1 gallon batches.

All from pasteurized apple juice in carboy jars I found at Whole Foods.
