TRASH Cider Group Buy at Soergel Orchards

Saturday, October 1st, 2016 at 8am - 9am

Location: 2573 Brandt School Rd, Wexford, PA 15090

This event is in the past.

The 2016 TRASH Cider pickup will be held at 8:00 AM sharp on Saturday, October 1st, 2016 at Soergel Orchards in Wexford.  Like last year, they will be pressing the cider for us the day before from a blend of apples well suited to making hard cider.  It will be cold-stored and unpasteurized or treated.  Like last year, we need to get in and out as quickly as possible since this is their crazy-go-nuts busy season.  If you've seen Soergels at noon on a Saturday in October, trust me - you want to get out of there early.

To get in on the group buy you must be dues-paid TRASH member.  (You can join now if you really want in on the action!)  Cider will once again be $4/gallon and you must pay for it in advance via PayPal.  To purchase cider, just send us an email and we'll respond with how to pay.  All orders and payment must be received by 8:00 PM on Thursday, September 22nd.


If you purchase cider and do now show up to pick it up at 8:00 on October 1st, your cider will be forfeited and divided up among those in attendance.

You must bring your own containers to the cider pickup.  Any large-mouth vessel is fine - a fermenter bucket, a corny keg, a Big Mouth Bubler-type carboy.  Heck, bring your conical if you want.  Just do not bring standard-mouth carboys, whether they're plastic or glass.  The reason is the hose doesn't fit and filling them requires a funnel and throttling of the juice - it's a hassle.  Buckets with lids or kegs are probably the best &
 easiest vessels to use.

For those who wish to treat their cider with potassium metabisulfite prior to pitching yeast, we will send out details instructions with the correct dosage and how to add it to avoid anyone, say, adding 5-10x too much sulfite.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to post to the TRASH forum or Facebook group to start a discussion.
