About cider: Our cider is seasonal. Pressing begins in August. Early cider is typically 2 or 3 varieties and light in color. September cider combines 4 to 6 (10) main varieties. October ciders are rich and complex combining 5 to 10 main varieties. Sweet cider is made from washed apples. It is non-certified organic, unpasteurized and unfiltered. Juice will keep in 35° refrigerator for up to 10 days before fermentation begins its normal (and healthy action). Natural (wild) yeasts will ferment the juice in the bottle at room temperature(65°) beginning in 2 days with 12% sugar going to 4% sugar (brix) and 4% alcohol in about 7-10 days. Do not shake and crack the lid, checking daily pressure.
