Eight of us met a couple weeks ago and made cider from apples and began fermentation. This is the follow up tasting to that meetup. This is Halloween week and some who attended the original meetup are busy and will not be able to attend. This is the only date that will work for me.
This is also Monday Night Football with the Seahawks so I will have a projection screen set up so we can keep an eye on the game as well.
I hope some others will attend that didn't come to the original meetup. If some new folks sign up and are interested I will give a short lesson in cider making and fermentation. In this lesson I will juice a few apples, show how to strain the juice, and describe the pasteurization options. I will take some already prepared juice, measure the potential alcohol, add sugar and add the yeast and air lock. I expect to spend only about 30 minutes or so on this.
Most of the evening will be taste testing the various ciders we made a couple weeks ago (and also a few others I have made), eat a little food and visit and watch the game. If the weather is dry we can sit around a fire in the backyard.
This is a week night so we will wrap up early, around nine I hope.
