About Me:
I'm a distiller working backwards :) I'm fairly good at crafting my own spirits (properly, none of this carbon filter and add flavour rubbish), but it's time to conquer a new challenge. I've skipped out the extract / partial stage and jumped right into all grain. Hoping to get a nice gravity fed setup going soon.

I'm quite unable to help anyone about beer, but if any of you do spirits as well, let me know if I can help!

Building a Cider Press

Posted on March 9, 2012 at 9:09am 13 Comments

I've built a cider press, and Mike at Brewers Coop has kindly offered it a home so other brewers can use it too. We should be doing our last pressing next week, then I'll give it another coat of oil and drop it off to Brewers Coop. This is an account of the build process if anyone is interested, copied over from elsewhere - hope it formats ok.


The Problem…

Hi Richard,
I've tried a PM reply again - sorry I couldn't get through via this - hope you got my post on yesterday's forum but just in case you haven't I thought I'd post on your wall instead.
If you're still keen for the bottles then you're welcome to pick up either tomorrow or during the week.
Perhaps you could give me a call ( Ph 021 636967) and we can work out a time.
I'd be well pleased if you were happy to share a wee drop of your gin (or any other spirit you're happy to share) - I was damn impressed with the write up on your distillery - has tweaked my interest I have to say!
