Tune into this episode to hear how cider-making differs from making beer or wine. Find out why yeast can be so unpredictable when used with different apple varieties. What constitutes “proper cider”? Tune in to learn why Joy and Jeremy spend so much time blending varieties of apples, and what qualifications are necessary for single-variety ciders. What varieties do Joy and Jeremy prefer to use?
