Notes

On 9/24 a bunch of friends got together to go apple picking. The day was full of drinks, sunshine, and shenanigans. The apples were tossed in the deep freeze until 10/8 and then thawed.
On 10/9 we got back together to eat, drink, and press them apples. We started with 3x 5 gallon buckets of Red Delicious, Gold Delicious, and Johnathan. The apples were quartered and loaded into a mesh bag for pressing. 6 gallons of pure liquid gold was extracted. The juice was pasteurized at 180 for 20m, chilled to 62f, and pitched Nottingham with yeast nutrient and nutrient booster.

OG was measured at 1.056

I intend to cold crash at 1.010 to maintain residual sweetness.
