With autumnal crispness in the air, now is the time for cider-making! Whether you harvested apples at the Provincial farm outing or bartered for them at a local market, join us for a hands-on session of mashing and pressing them for juice.
Thorfinn Hróthgeirsson has a cider press and has graciously offered to host a workshop at his home (near the 66th Street station of the 1 train) on Sunday, October 30, at 2:00 PM.
We’ll all work together to process the apples and share the combined juice. Please bring some apples and a large-enough container to take hone your juice; expect one gallon per 16-20 pounds of apples, or roughly one cup for every 3 apples.
Thorfinn will provide the equipment, and may be able to provide yeast for fermenting it if you desire. (If you would like to walk away with fermenting equipment, notify him in advance.)
To participate, email Thorfinn to RSVP and obtain directions.
The press will be located outdoors on a balcony. Masks are required while indoors. Unless it is bitterly cold, the windows will be open, and a HEPA air filter will be running inside, so dress for the weather.
Building has a wheelchair-accessible entrance and an elevator, but the apartment is not specifically accessible beyond that.
