I am a retired industrial chemist. In retirement I trained as a chef, for enjoyment only, and more recently I am a hobbyist cider maker with neighbours and friends. One outcome of the latter activity is that I am the originator of the Juice and Strain cider making process, which is accessible to everyone who has an apple supply. I am now embarked on a mission, which I chose to accept, to bring juice and strain to the people of the 93 apple growing countries in the world. This blog is one vehicle for achieving this aim. Another is our YouTube videos. The first of these provides a short introduction to the juice and strain process, see http://youtu.be/Qvc0cCh5r0c.

If you are interested and want to know more about the juice and strain process, you will find a “how to” article told in pictures, published in the HomeFarmer magazine article. If you want a full written tutorial the Make: magazine article will give you this, see: http://makezine.com/projects/kitchen-table-cider-making/
