MHBA Cider Buy Logistics

November 3, 2023
A few quick updates regarding logistics.
Location:
Number 12 Cider
614 N 5th St.
Minneapolis, MN 55401-1236
12:00pm Start time
4:00pm Finish
Your containers need to be pre-labelled with your name. There is a VERY small paved area in front of the main entrance big enough to turn around. Part of it will be occupied by the cider trailer and the food truck, so…

We will do our best to have someone near the driveway entrance to take your offloaded containers. You should then proceed north to the other end of the building where a large parking area is located. It states that parking is not allowed, but in fact it is allowed for Number 12 guests during the weekends and evenings.

Return to the entry and find your containers.

MHBA Cider Buy 2023

October 30, 2023

Orders have been closed as we draw near to our annual Cider Buy.

This is a reminder that the event will take place this Saturday (11/4/23), starting at noon and running until roughly 4 pm at Number 12 Cider in Minneapolis.

Bring a plastic bucket, stainless keg or similar. ABSOLUTELY NO GLASS. If you bring glass, you will be turned away, and your cider will be given to someone else. It’s a good idea to put a little starsan in your bucket in advance, and if you plan to wait before adding yeast, you might want to bring 25ppm per 5G of Potassium Sulfite and some Pectic Enzyme.

Bring apples and we’ll grind and press for fresh cider.

See you all there!
