Cider pressin' time!

Last week we had our second annual cider pressin' with Betsy and Devin. We pressed ~20 gallons of cider, all destined to become hard cider! We learned a few things this year:
1. One large plastic tote makes 3+ gallons of cider
2. Some apples are way juicer than others
3. A Subaru carload of apples makes ~20 gallons of cider
4. There are lots of free apples in the Bellingham area, you just have to find them!
5. Hard cider tastes best ~1 year after you pitch it.
6. It's hard to wait a year to drink it.
