We were given a carrier bag full of apples from the in-laws and they're not eaters and there's too many to cook with, so I was thinking of trying to make cider. But this will be a micro, tiny, wee batch. So I don't want to buy any new equipment. Was thinking of scratting them in the kitchen blender. Will this kill it, or should it be OK for a few small batches? Then pressing - I don't have a jack or any way to knock up a pressing frame, so was just thinking of wrapping the pulp in a muslin and then squeezing it between two biscuit boxes (family circle plastic types) - bottom one with a small hole in it to let the juice out, top one weighed down with dumbells or tin cans or anything else I can find. Do you think this will work, or will I need much more pressure to get the juice out? If I get juice out, I was then planning to add a campden tablet, then cider yeast, rack off after fermentation, mature and bottle. Is this all too simple? Please bear in mind it's not worth me getting too involved for such a small amount of apples, but if I can get a few litres of drinkable cider in the spring, I'll be very happy.
