scummy Scunny Scrumpy 2

Today I started on the next batch of scrumpy, and I think that the frost may have helped break down the apples alot more than my first attempt as I got twice as much juice from three pressings than last time. Although washing the apples in freezing cold water was not as exciting.

here is a tip for anybody who is using a crank press for the first time, make sure that none of the blocks of wood are touching the sides, as I found out today after nearly breaking the thing.
