Following on from last year’s successful cider making workshops we will be running a few cider making courses in the run up to cider making season.
We will learn to process from start to finish and the time scales involved.
We start the day with a tour of the cidery.
We will be discussing the process and covering any questions you many have.
We will talk about different apple varieties and apple qualities and how to make a well balanced cider.
The Science behind cider making, fermentation process, cider problems and maturing times.
We will look in detail at the process of crushing the fruit, pressing the juice from the pulp and testing the juice ready for fermentation.
We look at sterilising and cleaning of equipment, bottling and packaging.
The courses are design for 8-10 people.
Warm clothes are advisable as the cidery is a little chilly this time of year.
The course will include lunch at the local pub and more opportunity to pick my brains.
The total cost is £85. You can book this course online with a £40 deposit and pay the remainder on the day.
