Cider trials

Every year my parents have a surplus of apples at the holiday house on the island. This year we thought we might try to make cider out of it. Picked two ikea bags full and took them to a cooperative apple press (Rosenhill in Ekerö).

It came to 25 litres of juice! The cider pro manning the press said the apples were a bit tasteless:/ Apparently it’s due to a rainy and cold summer. Never mind, let’s see if we can learn how to do it this year and we can improve next year… I put some brewers yeast in the juice and bought a little air vent that goes on top of the bottle to release pressure. That was a few days ago and now it’s started bubbling away:)
