Another juicing session

new press

 

The Press Gang assembled at 10am on that lovely mild Thursday morning at the barn, with Susanne, Dave, Val, Christopher, Katherine and Michele, together with John.

 

Susanne displayed the new press and it was soon put to work.

juicing

All in all a proper production line!
Lessons had been learnt
from the previous exertions
which meant it went well …

…well, except for
the new press which
gave Dave and John much
aggravation, as it did
not appear fit for the
job at all.

measuring the specific gravity

Specific gravity read,
depending on apple variety,
at 41-51, which will
possibly provide a lower
degree of alcohol than
the last batch.

mmmh!

The juices were tested
– or should I say tasted?
– at different stages and
much enjoyed by Katherine …
