Bumping this thread to let folks add to the tally this year, as we're in cider season in the Northern hemisphere. Be sure to update the total when you add your contributions. Last year we hit 1492 gallons, let's see how we fare in 2018.

Agreed, we're way behind schedule so far this year at 269...

I suspect we're just under-reported this year. I've seen at least a dozen cider, cyser perry threads or comments, and thats just in the last 5-6 weeks. That doesn't factor in all the ones I've missed. I think we may be a long way off from 1492, but I'll bet true numbers are 2-3x higher.

393.5+4=397.5 Just mixed up batch #12 this one ended up with a high OG about 1.080 at 60 f. I may try to cold crash it at about 6% ABV to keep it sweet.

We're Cider fanatics so we mainly make cider and have had a good experimental year. Our first batch started Oct 16, 2017 so we're just getting into it and wanted to try a variety of yeasts, juices, flavors, ages etc.


Batches started in 2018:

24 gallons fresh pressed (final pressing from 2017)
6 gallon blend of frozen fresh pressed and store juice
42 gallons store bought juice
30 gallons fresh pressed (2018 season so far, I'm sure I'll be adding more here soon)
------------------
102 gallons

412.5 + 102 = 514.5

Two new 6 gallon batches arrived tonight!

Well, one is more like 6.5 gallons.

This will be our first wild cider and our first time using S-05 yeast! [emoji482] [emoji482]

645.5 + 12.5 = 658

I’m at 85 gallons this year. Previous best was 35 gallons in a year. I went in on a small commercial grinder / mill that has made all the difference. I’ve already bottled 7 gallons of pumpkin-spiced cider, 5 gallons of hatch chili cider, and 5 gallons of plain cider (all dry). A few yeast experiments (Belgian ale and saison, some wild fermented, some champagne yeast, some d-47, and some British ale yeast).

658 + 85 = 743

We just picked up two 6 gallon carboys of fresh pressed from a "hard cider" blend of apples.

One 5 gallon batch with S04, one 5 gallon batch with english cider yeast.
Two experimental 1 gallon batches with a blend of Cuvee and Classique yeasts at varying levels.

Very different than the traditional fresh cider we usually pick up, albeit significantly more expensive per gallon. We're pretty "excidered" about these!

749 + 12 = 761
