I finally got around to pressing my apples for the year. The deer got most of them, but I managed to put together a couple 5-gallon buckets and yielded a couple gallons at 1.054. Not bad, but pretty low sugar content compared to previous seasons.
One gallon went to the kids, and one gallon went straight into the fermenter... no campden, no heat pasteurization, no nothin'. Just the juice straight from the press. I pitched a bit of slurry from some harvested Kveik yeast, just because it seems to be the yeast of the year. I'll be interested in seeing how the esters play with the apples, but this morning it's chugging away nicely.
Anyone else manage to get some apples this year from their trees?
