Thanks to everyone who showed up to Barley John’s on Saturday to help with our Annual Cider distribution. This year the MHBA purchased 500 gallons and probably set a record for how quickly it was distributed, with it all going within about 3 hours! As usual, Barley John’s Brew Pub in New Brighton hosted our event and had a fantastic collection of beers available for us to try while filling buckets and carboys.
For anyone who is still sitting on their cider, here are a couple resources to get you started fermenting!

Anyone who is a current member of the American Homebrewers Association should check out the November/December 2013 Issue of Zymurgy for a geat article on different yeasts used for Cider.
Homebrew Talk Cider Yeast Experiment
Jonathan Beckel, our cider buy coordinator, provided a link to an report of an older cider yeast experiment written up on the HomeBrewTalk.com website. The experiment dates from 2008 but has some very interesting information.
Ask a Club Member
A final resource is your fellow club members. If you are struggling, jump on one of out email lists, our Facebook Group or on Twitter and ask a question. There are lots of people in the club who love to share their knowledge. Just Ask!
