Cheap is expensive.... looks like there's about to be a big waste of
apples.... more like you'll be producing apple compost. You can't
make decent cider from puree. I've seen dozens of small family run
apple cider operations, they all press apple chunks. And it really
doesn't pay to micky mouse a small batch of cider at home, it's
cheaper to buy a few gallons ready made. A lot of apples are required
to produce a gallon of juice. Cider is an apple orchard by-product,
it's one of the ways they use damaged fruit (drops). Market apples
are pretty pricy nowadays, unless one has a source of essentially free
drops it doesn't pay to make cider.
Rob, I guess you know by now that this jack-ass always has a
discouraging word to say. Screw him. With the apples already crushed,
the juice has a shorter way to travel to escape the fruit. If any
problem occur with pressing, some rice hulls would take care of it.
"Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the
having made 3 batches using a kitchen whizz, ie pulped apples, this is no
different - just far less labour intensive. The cider doesn't taste too bad
once stored long enough (1 plus year). Once I get the carbonation correct,
so that it nicely fizzes over some ice, I'll be entirely happy.
