Cider (and Mead) making today

Jen and I had frozen some of the extra juice from last Fall's pressings and we spent today making some more Cider. Did about 30 Gallons of various Apple varieties and we are testing a some different kinds of yeast including a wild one collected from one of our trees.

We also made 5 Gallons of Sweet Mead (15 Lbs. of good Clover Honey) and planning to make a couple other batches using some of the Blackberry honey we got from Jerry Guilmette — I wrote about him here.

I'll post photos of all the carboys bubbling happily in a few days…
