Well this Saturday,Tso and I are making cider.

As per my belief system the apples will be local (though storage) and I will try to be as natural as possible. I really think that this product is a natural down here and I hope it will taste good. I am not going native and do what the English sites suggest, mainly stealing the apples, building a press and no yeast. I will be legal and try to keep the alcohol to ~5%. It's been fun researching since English apples and Canadian apples are called different things and its the blend of these apples that makes it go. So we have a few to choose from and I'm using the idiot savant approach as I really dislike apples but really like cider. I think this calls for a field trip to do research . The Oak, I think since they carry all the Woodchuck line, which are my favorite ciders.

 

I could have made wine, but I wouldn't want a few vintners to cry when I make a far superior product than theirs. So to keep everyone positive, I will make cider and only crush one cider maker. His cider is excellent, but I want to make a different style(and cheaper too), so we'll be able to get along.

 

I'll keep you all posted on my progress. Please wish me luck…I think I'll need it.
