great pic Ivanhoe, and a great album with a very simple naming convention of the photo's.
other zeider hats in abundance.
Tattie - if you put a list together of what you need, it can be purchased at Cheers, in Cheam, by MrsR and Plum, when they go and pick it up on Saturday, as above you don't need much equipment, as an initial outlay, and after the pressing, there's very little that you actually have to do to it. It'll carry on on it's own without any human intervention for months at a time!
in fact here is a short list now - 1 Gal DemiJohn, bung with hole, airlock - everything else you can either beg, borrow or steal on the pressing day, or share communally as and when you need it.
If anyone's got any of those clamps that you use to hold something to a bench (they call them G-clamps, or C-clamps), please bring them along on Sunday as they will be very useful to hold the scratter to the tables (which we need to ask the farm to borrow).
And Jon, can you mail me your address please, so I can pick you up tomorrow morning. Ta.
Ivanhoe, you didn't answer my question about when we're supposed to pay Richard in Cheam for the equipment. Have put £15 of petrol in the car ready for the trips but to be honest I'm a bit brassic at the moment so are we sorting out monies owed on Sunday for me to pay him when I return the stuff on Monday?
Excellent - a bit wet, till the gazebo turned up.
Lot's of fun, spirits not dampened too much by the miserable weather.
Just over 800lbs of apples made about 27 gallons of apple juice, which will ferment to cider over the next few months to a year.
I'm absolutely shattered, but very content.
Jac and Plum, could you tell me what equipment you took? either reply here, send me pm or email with details.
Jac, you had 2 gals of juice, Plum you had one, right?
Simon, you took 12 gallons, I took 7, and the farm had 5.
I'll work out who owes who what when I've got all details together.
