We spent a beautiful fall Sunday pressing apples with Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (OFRE). With our pressing equipment in action, we chatted with people about their cidermaking. It was wonderful to hang out with a group of like-minded local fruit enthusiasts and share our passion.
OFRE organizes several community pressings for their members every fall. If you join OFRE (which we definitely recommend you do!) you can sign up to pick local apples and then bring them to be pressed too!
OFRE has a really cool bike-powered grinder that is a lot of fun.
Join us again for the last OFRE pressing of the season on October 7th. We will be there crushing, pressing, and answering any homebrewing questions you may have!
