Making Your Own Hard Cider: Practice and Principles with Norumbega Cidery at Shaker Village

Noah Fralich of Norumbega Cidery of New Gloucester will teach the basics of fruit selection, processing, equipment, microbiology, and the general craft of making hard cider. We will go through the entire process from fruit on the tree to juice in the glass that you will take home to tend, taste, and bottle come winter and spring!  The class will visit the Shakers’ apple orchard and apples for your hard cider will be supplied by the Shakers (Honey Crisps, Cortlands, and Macs). Spice it up with some Shaker herbs, if you’re feeling adventurous!  You are also welcome to bring your own apples if you want to brew from your own fruit.

All materials, tools, and supplies are included and you will go home with a 1-gallon glass carboy filled with your brew, an airlock, and a hydrometer to keep so that you can continue home brewing!

Noah is the owner and brewer of Norumbega Cidery, a hard cider company located in New Gloucester, Maine. He has been making hard cider both personally and commercially since completing his degree in Sustainable Economics/Agriculture.

Perfect for those already homebrewing or those looking to start – All levels are welcome! Must be 21 years of age or over. Class size: 20.
