Paul Brookshire has been making cider at home for 4 seasons, using primarily heirloom and homestead apples from a friend’s farm in the Methow Valley.Through trial and error, and being certified through Peter Mitchell’s Cider Making Class in 2012 offered by the Northwest Agricultural Business Center in Mt Vernon, he is fairly confident in producing the best cider any given apple can offer.
His favorite style of cider is made with the champagne method, producing a crisp, true flavored cider, perfect for most occasions and cuisines. In this workshop Paul will go over the steps and equipment needed to make cider at home.
This class is part of the Second Sunday (and One Saturday) Series of fruit tree care classes put on by City People’s Garden Store and City Fruit. The workshop is free: call City People’s at 206-324-0737 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
