The 2017-18 cyders are racked off.

I’m always curious to see the patterns the lees make after racking. Generally everything drops right to the bottom, leaving clean sides and a watery, cratered surface.

Pretty stuff.

Now that they’re racked, they’ll spend the winter conditioning and be bottled sometime in the spring.
