A few months ago I got together with a few of the Village people to make cider. I made some last year using and breaking my electric juicer.
This time without the juicer we used 3 pillow cases, a small hand juicer and a sledge hammer. Needless to say it was a long and arduous task.
After about 3 hours of grating and sieving the apples through the pillow cases we managed to produce about 20 pints of juice.
Since then it has been fermenting into cider, about 8% proof. The 2nd tasting will be very soon, the first tasted of mud and grass with a hint of apple.
