Begins mid-October, 2020 at my home brewery in Fleetwood PA. Price will be approximately $150. Exact dates TBA. We meet 5-6 times between mid-October (when the juice is ready) and January, usually on Saturdays afternoons or Mondays from 6-9 pm. If you are interested and have a strong preference for days of the week, please contact me.
Turning fresh apple cider into delicious fermented hard cider is the easiest and most enjoyable of fermentation processes. We obtain most our juice from regional orchards in late October then meet to learn about all aspects of cider making. We will press as much fresh, local apples and crabapples as we can! Each student completes the course with approximately 2.5 gallons of bottled cider, customized to personal taste with choices of yeasts, fruit, and herbs and spices. Intermediate students with prior experience will gain increased knowledge about all aspects of cider making through instruction and independent study.
