November’s club meeting – –
we are excited to have Tom Mueller as a guest speaker. Tom is an extreme home cider maker and willing to share his expertise, trial and errors with us!
•Thursday, November 19 at 7pm (note the new start time!)
•Location: Bainbridge Island Grange -10340 Madison Ave NE, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
Tom has been home brewing and making cider and fruit wines for 20 years (when he first moved to BainbridgeIsland). He has been involved in backyard fruit growing and was on the board of Western Washington Fruit Growers Foundation for two years. There they worked with WSU in Mt. Vernon to grow various types of fruit trees and bushes to see what worked best in our climate.
Tom plans on talking to us about how he got into making cider and how he learned the process. He’ll go thru the equipment needed and go over the basic recipe for making cider. He’ll talk about various apple and pear varieties that have worked for him and how to mix different varieties to get more complex ciders. He’ll also tell us what works and he’ll share some failures and surprises!
Join us for what looks to be an enjoyable evening!
