TRASH and TRUB Cider Group Buy Pickup at Soergel's
October 7, 2017, 8:00am
Recycling Jack’s kind words:
The 2017 TRASH Cider pickup will be held at 8:00 AM sharp on Saturday, October 7th, 2017 at Soergel Orchards in Wexford. Like last year, they will be pressing the cider for us the day before from a blend of apples well suited to making hard cider. It will be cold-stored and unpasteurized or treated. Like last year, we need to get in and out as quickly as possible since this is their crazy-go-nuts busy season. If you've seen Soergels at noon on a Saturday in October, trust me - you want to get out of there early. I am extending this service to TRUB because I like you all so much.
To get in on the group buy you must be dues-paid TRASH or TRUB member. (You can join now if you really want in on the action at www.trashhomebrewers.org/public/pay/subscription/!) Cider will be $3.75/gallon and you must pay for it in advance via PayPal. To purchase cider, just send us an email at [email protected] and we'll respond with how to pay. All orders and payment must be received by 8:00 PM on Thursday, September 28th.
DO NOT SHOW UP AT SOERGELS IF YOU DID NOT CONTACT US AND PAY FOR YOUR CIDER IN ADVANCE.
If you purchase cider and do now show up to pick it up at 8:00 on October 7th, your cider will be forfeited and divided up among those in attendance.
You must bring your own containers to the cider pickup. Any large-mouth vessel is fine - a fermenter bucket, a corny keg, a Big Mouth Bubbler-type carboy. Heck, bring your conical if you want. Just do not bring standard-mouth carboys, whether they're plastic or glass. The reason is the hose doesn't fit and filling them requires a funnel and throttling of the juice - it's a hassle. Buckets with lids or kegs are probably the best & easiest vessels to use.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to post to the TRASH forum or Facebook group to start a discussion.
