If you've read other threads you may have noticed that Ivanhoe and myself are planning on meeting up to drink some locally produced SE1 cider.

anyone else out there who made some, or who would like to taste some, is more than welcome to come along.

Please can people suggest a venue, date, time, etc, and we'll organise something.

Any night next week, in a park, perhaps? We can do tasting, and then adjourn to a pub for more socialising.

You know I would love to do it by the electric tree at More London. We could then go to the Bridge House for some Aspalls cider (which would be about as different from ours as you could get - fizzy and sweeter and made from desert apples, but still good imho).


...if you press it, they will come.

sounds good!

Pick a night then. Any time after, say, 7, is good for me.

...if you press it, they will come.

Are we allowed to drink cider in parks in Southwark these days ?

On a quick re-review, only for so long as we remain calm and none of us gets lairy.

I'm game so long as I find the time to rack my smaller container this weekend. Does it matter if I drink it only a few days after racking and bottling ? 18 or 19 July good for me.

yep, as soon as it's bottled, it's drinkable.

(some people even prefer to crack open the barrel and drink it without bottling it, but they're the proffesional drinkers!)

for me too - 18th or 19th are good.

how about that park type bit outside Tate Modern? it's reasonably close to the electric apple tree too

Yep. Tues or Weds are great. I really would like to do a tasting under the electric apple tree itself, if no one objects. It would be wonderfully absurd.

But whatever you want...

...if you press it, they will come.

Drat! I'm going to be away.

but you didn't make any cider, Jo, did you?

...if you press it, they will come.

No, but I'd still like to meet up with you all and taste all yours. I've got some of my vintage 2005 to offer in return.
