Cider Days With Michał

DJ Wysocki aka Michał is a guru of many things and was a great young lad when I mentioned making some cider, in that he said he could bring me some organic chemical free apples from the wild East where his family has a small holding. So I got organised in the ol' kitchen and cleaned all surfaces getting it all ready so that we could get the party started.

Fill the bath with apples and soak them giving them a little scrub if need be.

And start the juicing

working it through some muslin

but wait there is more

Michał getting a run on the juicer

mixing up the duties

choppy choppy

and after filtering into a demijohn

keep working on those apples remaining

and juice it

this is all the waste from our fabulous Hurom juicer

unveiling the last batch

squeezing out the left overs.

and finishing with two demijohns and a fermenting bucket. After a good 2 hours.
