  • Anyone can make hard cider! Learn how to use the bounty from forgotten trees, “culled” and surplus fruit to make a delicious hard cider in this lecture presented by award-winning cider maker, Paul Brookshire.

    Paul will take participants through minimum equipment they need to make cider, as well as what to expect from the process and how to avoid errors. All aspects are covered from fruit collection and prepping, milling and crushing, fermenting and storing, and finally bottling techniques that can be applied at any scale. This is a lecture-style format with PowerPoint and some demonstration, students will NOT be taking cider home.

    Instructor: Paul Brookshire

    Paul believes that anyone can make an exquisite cider from the everyday apple. He is a passionate and award-winning home cider maker (GLINTCAP Gold ’16) for over 8 years, with the aim of discovering forgotten orchards and fruit trees and exploring their use in making fine hard ciders.
