what does one do with 250 + gallons of cider in a single year?
If you are drinking it...that's like 5 gallons a week.
If you are giving it away - isn't that expensive?
I make 18 gallons a year and drink it all by myself...I could see doubling that...but not more.

It's a running total.

You can add the 5 x 5 gallons I've already made and add another 5 5xgallon batches that I will do by the end of the year for a total of 50 gallons.

260.5 +25 = 285.5

Add 2x5 English cider in May and June, and 1 gal easy peasy pear for 296.5

Only 1.5 so far! It's so little, I am only posting here because the .5 on the total is bothering me
285.5 + 1.5 = 287

Taking Brewer 20d's 20 gallons and my 6 gallons and adding it to the previous 306 gallons, brings us to 332

306 + 20 + 6 = 332

BTW, Brewer 20D, is your name a Canon camera reference? I started on a 20D

I'm assuming that thinbluebbq had not added his total so my one gallon of Unicorn Blood makes it...

336 + 64 + 1 = 401

401+ 5 = 406

Up to 20 so far.

Wow. And I wondered if my 4 gallons was going to be too much.

Question: Is the amount of cider produced directly proportional to the waistline? (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

Yes. Lol. But the happiness ratio is usually proportional to the ammout of cider as well!

I'll throw my 52 gallons of assorted ciders (standard apple, cyser, pineapple apple, cherry apple, raspberry apple, berry apple, and peach apple) into the mix...

409+52=461 gallons

509+5= 514
514 + 11 = 525

Two weeks of collecting apples, pulping them and pressing the juice. Wild fermentation, will have to wait and see.

525 + 10 = 535

525 + 10 = 535
+5.5 indian summer brand cider with montmorency cherry juice and brown candi sugar + brett B

= 540.5 total

#### stella_tigre

##### Queen of the Upper Mississippi
540.5+5 using D47 + 12 home pressed in several batches = 557.5

Not going to count the batch that turned vinegary

I am at a lowly 21 gallons in primary, soon to racked into secondary. I went to a nursery this evening and gathered some of the windfalls. Will be pressing tomorrow and I think it will add another 6 or so to the count.

Yes it does sir, yes it does.

Just means you are about to prep for THIS November's batch... right? ;-)

Most of the cider I pitch this fall will be bottled in spring, summer & fall 2016.
