Ever want to make cider at home? Tune in to this week’s episode of Fuhmentaboudit!, as hosts Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett are joined by two cider homebrewers, Chris Prout and Ben Carr. Find out how to make hard cider from apples, and what the pressing process entails. From bushel to bottle – get the inside scoop on how you can turn delicious apples into even more delicious cider. Learn why what you get out of the fermentation process changes based on the season, and how brewers deal with the time sensitive nature of cider. Discover why brown spots aren’t always bad and how back sweetening can help with acidity issues. This program was sponsored byThe Brooklyn Kitchen.
“You have to make a party of it. If you only have two people to get through 8 bushels of apples – it’s not gonna happen!” 10:00
