As kozzol said Interesting thread this one.... But does any body have any good brewing recipes for cider and what is the process


I'm with BlackAqua on this one - lets start brewing, there are loads of
ЯБЬЛКA (apple) sorry it should be Yabulki for plural. Who's got the recipes and know - how? Slaphead - is it you, fit it in between fishing?

Haven't a clue where you can get some in BG - though would be interested. Remember many moons ago working in an Accounts Dept in Godalming and taking the occasional lunch break at the local cider house - "Hand Grenade" = half something draught and a bottle. Nice but potent :D Nothing really added up after two of these :D

Making cider is easy. There is absolutely nothing difficult about it, my uncle used to make hundreds of barrels of it on his farm, he even had a licencee to sell cider and snuff from his barn. Sunday mornings used to be crowded with all the old locals, before they went to church.
Basically Press your apples. Put apple juice in a container. Add yeast. Put apple juice in a container. Let it ferment for a month or so. Put the cider in clean bottles. Wait for a couple of months. Drink the cider.
Uncle did not bottle it he kept it on draught, in oak barrels.

Grif

I just spotted it, it should be ЯБЪЛКА not ЯБЬЛКA. Silly me, I have had a few Boliarki.

Two ways I think you can go on this.

a) You need to smash up the apples, maybe a big sledgehammer in a barrel? Then put the apple bits in a rough bag, those white ones used for animal feed here should work find. Make up a press, either lots of locals hanging on to a big pivoted wood beam or the jack off your lada. Collect juice, put in barrel and wait.

b) Use a powerful juice extrator and go to the last stage of above.

You don't need yeast, apples are covered in wild yeast, but you might get a better result if you did, or on the other hand, it might explode...

Hmmm.
When Soo gets back from her UK shopathon (with the hair done too!), I think I may just find the nearest bulk supplier to BG, load the van, bring it back and make loadsa money from you scrumpites by selling it at vastly inflated prices.

Lee, buy a garden shredder and put the apples through that.

Slaps.

What a brilliant idea! Anyone seen shredders or chippers here?
