|Oregon Hard Knocks|
|Bottling on the small scale|
I worked on some bottling yesterday. It was the Oregon Hard Knocks, Apples, Honey and Herbs. The Oregon Hard Knocks has a naturally slight haze to it. I've chose to leave it, just as many of the
English cideries do. Many of my other wines are much clearer. For now I choose to do no fining or filtering, the wine is in its natural state.
I have shared small bottling with friends earlier this year and the biggest response has been to the Nose, the honey and the wonderful fragrance of the herbs. I have mentioned to a few the combination of herbs I used, but I'm now realizing I should probably keep this proprietary. Oh well, live and learn.
Yes I know small scale, 5 cases took me about 2 hours to prep and bottle. One of the number one questions people always ask is if I want to expand. For now I say No, this is my life and the way I like it.
