One of my loves is cider, and the brandy you can distil from it. Like many craft brewers I was a homebrewer before taking up brewing as a profession and I still love fermenting food at home. My cider project has been a long time coming and now finally my little home orchard has began. I have purchased 8 cider apple trees and have planted them in my front and rare gardens. I also plan to put a couple of eaters in that will be suitable for cider too. Next winter we wassail!
