In June I had 70 gal on hand that I pressed in 2015 and fermented over the winter. Now that bottling the '15 harvest is over, I'm ready to press again next month. I figure my 731 lbs of apples on hand will make just about 50 gal which should be fermenting by Dec 1 and ready to bottle next summer. The '15 should keep me happy until this time next year when the '16 is fit to drink. Not sure how you want to allocate my production since I don't do cider by the calendar. Maybe the average?

Pretty sure we can all agree that when you 'make' the cider is when you ferment it Scrumpy. Bottling can happen at anytime... so let us know when you start pitching yeast on those apples, all 731 lbs worth! :)

5 gal of dark cider
5 gal of everyday simple dry
10 gal pappys pub
2 gal ice cider
1 gal apple/pear cider
2 gal misc. cider

828.5+25= 853.5gal

Some of these are wine strength so not sure if they classify as a "cider" per se.

I am making 10 gallons of cider this year so this makes 863.5 Gallons. Hope it turns out with the addition of stevia to sweeten the .998 and 1.000 batches. I added 1/2 tsp to the .998 cider yeast batch and 1/4 tsp to the SO-5 yeast batch. Cider on. Our brewing club bought 140 galllons to split with members if any of that counts, add it on!

16 gallons picked up Saturday,
WLP775 in 5, WLP002 in 1, Mangrove Jacks in 5, and e-1118 with 7lbs of light LME added to the last 5.
920.75 + 16 = 936.75

Twenty more gallons from neighborhood trees, wild ferment. About 100 lbs of apples left to press when they fully ripen.

1,075.75 + 20 = 1,095.75

I just started another 5 gallon batch of cider with orchard juice and Cotes Des Blanc yeast.

1095.75 + 5 = 1100.75

2 batches in the basement: 5 gallon and a 6 gallon from fresh pressed cider this fall. One will end up a dry, still cider; the other will be a sparkling, still cider... nothing fancy- just the way I like it!

Another 4.5 gal fermenting with 100% wild fruit, SG=1.067 and a TA of 25! This is amazing juice with a real snap. When that sugar is gone, it will still be acid enough to dissolve a penny. I pitched Lalvin 71B to reduce the malic as much as possible. I expect to pitch ML bacteria when the SG hits 1.005 to mellow it out a little more. This batch will be used as a blending agent to bump the acid and tannin of my other batches.

Not sure if I should tally mcampbell65's but I'll do it anyway.

1128.75 + (mcampbell65) 11 + (mine) 4.5 = 1144.25

Still waiting for my Baldwins to ripen so I will add another 7-10 gals before the season is over.

About to put 6 gallons into my new FastFerment set up later today, I have everything filled to the brim with sanitizer and doing a good deep soak on the tank heater. This will be a total of 33 gallons so far this season with the hopes of getting at least one maybe two more batches before the first.

So is that 33G or 6G to the total?

I'll add 6G to the total for you

Plus my new 18G + your 6=1168.25
