Fruits of the cider press labour

20120426-092439.jpg

A 220l ex Chardonnay barrel, under the house to sleep over the winter. The best thing is that we get to reuse the barrel afterwards! Very exciting.

The airlock on the barrel is there because we primed the barrel with a bit of fresh juice when filling to take care of any oxygen I the process. It also got a co2 scrub to reduce h2s.

I can’t wait to sample it!
