The stars aligned yesterday in our neighborhood as many folks found themselves with copious amounts of apples (see Leah's post) and a willing cider press. Together we all made lots and lots of apple cider--I didn't get a final tally; 35 gallons? We ended up with 5 gallons for hard cider and about 3 gallons of sweet, plus a bin of the chopped-up, squeezed-out apple bits that Skye's determined to ferment and freeze into applejack. Plans are in the works for a winter doldrums party. February at the Boatshop, people!
