Apple Mill/Crusher - DIY Cider :-)

Selling this, thought I'd post it here 'cos it's a change from anchors and Mollers will have a larf with it

It's a Vigo Crusher B. (Big M-F)

I'll bung it on Fleabay if anyone's interested...

Jaysus Mollers, you're showing the age there. I didn't get that until I Youtubed it.

Then it all came flooding back - Windy Miller, the nasty retracting Masonic Parquet Flooring, loud voices arguing, the beatings.....

Does adding the cat get the fermentation process underway?

Marginally better than adding a few rats. You're not so late, apple juice is low in the nutrients that yeast need. A bit of protein helps...

Yeah, waiting for the postman. My "orchard" is growing up and it looks like I'm in for a bumper crop so I need something bigger...

I didn't know they were partial to the old electric lemonade in the Fatherland. Hope a grand machine like that isn't being wasted over there, producing alkohol-frei

Vigo 12 litre cider press and crusher. My husband bought this with all good intentions but football and the pub got in its way, he has made just 1 pint of cider and it is just sitting in our shed unused.
You have to have some respect for a guy who's spending too much time down the pub to make his own cider

The whole thing cost £850 new last summer.
I thought the idea behind home brew was to produce some shant on the cheap

Beer and wine yes, cider from apples no. It's hard physical work and requires either ingenious home made equipment or expensive purpose made kit.

I started with a 4"x4"x5' apple bashing pole and a press made from an old keg driven by a car jack.

I'm now at the upper end of the hobby scale. In two years, I'll be producing a reliable surplus....

A workmate created a website for his Pompey Cider, he uses a garden shredder and a bottle jack.

LOL - he used to:

"The garden shredder above was used on our first year but internally the chute had some bear mild steel. This went a beautifull blue colour but forntunately didn't taint the apple juice. I guess the the contact was transiant.....and we are all still living with good okay eyesite :-) "

It's a problem with garden shredders - they have a lot of non-stainless and less than food grade plastic in them and apple juice is very aggressive*. Very hit and miss, that's why I bought the item now for sale. He looks like he's on the ball though!

* My cider can be, too
