Beardsley's Cider Mill offers untreated cider for making hard (alcoholic) cider. You can drop off your own container, barrel, or carboy, and we will fill it with fresh cider. The best apples for making hard cider usually ripen in late October thru early November such as Winesap, Baldwin, Northern Spy, Golden Russet, and Yellow Delicious.
We also offer 5-gallon carboy starter kits which include a carboy filled with cider and a water seal. Fifty gallon used whiskey barrels are also sometimes available. Please call ahead for availability.
Ask for Dave or Dan Beardsley for advice on the various styles and methods of making your hard cider. We can direct you to a local supply store, Maltose Express, for any cider-making supplies you may need.
