Hard Cider Making
Learn what goes into a bottle of quality hard cider, a rapidly-growing small farm and orchard product niche.
Over his years at the WSU Tree Fruit Research Station, Gary was able to grow and experiment with a broad variety of cider and dessert apples, over time developing a knack for the blending process required to develop a quality hard cider product.
From apple to glass you'll learn about the production steps necessary create a premium cider. We'll also take a look at a number of locally produced premium hard ciders.
