November is generally a wet month but we have been hit today with over 4” of rain. Things are fine, Jen just checked all of our 140 new trees last week and they did fine over the summer and are tucking in for a couple months of rest.

Working on a couple test batches of cider, refining the process and checking different yeast strains against known apple juices to see what tastes the best. Fun stuff — homebrewing is the first time I ever made actual use of my college microbiology courses.

Working with an Architect to design the main Cidery building but I found out a few days ago that a building on the main drag in town is for sale. There is some fire damage and it has been sitting vacant for about a year —but— if it is available at the right price, the tasting room would see a lot more traffic. I'll be calling the owners this Friday to see what they want.

Unfortunately, the building in Maple Falls is not available. The cause of the fire is still in litigation and the building codes have changed since it was built, so we would likely have to move it back from the road.

Back to the old drawing board...
