Let the Brandy Sleep

We are entering our 6th season of making apple brandy.. Now the picking season is over, we move seamlessly into filling the fermenting tanks with cider from our cider apple varieties. By December we will be ready to start distilling. We're putting the final touches on the new barrel cellar and hope to move all the barrels in before this years distilling starts. I'm really read for the quiet early winter days running the still filling barrels and playing my mandolin by the still fire. This all seems to fit so well into living out my outlaw, cowboy dreams.. I might even break out into a few wild yodels..
