Cider Making

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.
