The harvest and first step of processing of the 2022 cider season is now nearly finished, in the next week or two numbers will be done and short summary shared. Still very briefly, around 12 tonnes of apples were pressed and slightly under 100 hl (10 000 l) of moût is fermenting now. The specific density were better than last year, close to 1050 or even tiny bit above. Concerning the quantities, we have processed around 60% less of apples and there is less than 50% moût. The reasons for this is both the very weak year for apples and also the limits of investments into this season. As said more detail overview will be shared in the next week or two. One thing which should be mentioned is that this season was again exceptionally rainy. This fact, high long term humidity coupled with higher than average temperatures caused quite some loss in fruits and quite some difficulties to enter the orchards to bring the apples when harvested, driving backwards with the Peugeot 206 SW loaded with ten bags of apples to the edge of the orchard to re-load them into the trailer afterwards, well not easy.
