All right, just a little bit about making cider, let’s turn the generator off. Okay I’ve been asked to make a few videos about cider. Cider is a great drink. It’s ecologically very sound, uses much less fossil fuel to make than beer. And if you grow apples on any sort of scale, you always going to have some leftover which can be made into juice or cider and the all-special apples which will make much better cider, particularly to the West Country cider apples. I wouldn’t say too much about this because I want to keep this video short. I’ll add some others later.
Basically cider is a drink made from apple juice with the sugar turned to alcohol by yeast, and that’s all it is, very similar to wine.
There are three stages in making cider, the first is to crush the apples. Here’s our crusher, it’s a centrifuge or crusher down there. There’s a six-blade knife, I think you might just be able to see. You drop the apples in, the knife whizzes round, crushes the apples and squeezes them through a perforated stainless steel screen that’s inside there. And here is the apple juice, the crushed apple that has come out. Now that’s called the malaise. Now that is the first stage of making cider, take your apples, which in this case is a mixture of sweet and bittersweet cider apples from our orchard. These are LeBret, Dabionette, Fagermeister’s Jersey and the Arlington Mill going in this particular mix.
The next stage is to squeeze the juice out of the apples.
