straining out the pulp
Today I decided to move it to the second stage. I scooped out most of the apple chunks.
Then, it was matter of straining out the rest so the cider is relatively clear and free of gunk. (Thats a technical cider making term). I used a big nylon mesh bag for this. I think Steve got this for his beer brewing. I just poured the cider mash into a big bowl lined with the bag.
hanging the bag for draining
I hung the bag up from a cabinet knob, to let it drain while I did a few other things.
