Chairman's Message

Autumn is here and the new season apples are abundant. Now is the time to think about apple wines, ciders and cysers.

The Association recently had a great day of apple juicing. Galas, Cox's Orange Pippin and other varieties were crushed and juiced. An industrial meat mincer formed an ideal scratter with the apple mass then juiced in one of our member's home made juicer and a stainless steel commercial mincer loaned to us by The Brewers Pantry of Sorell.

Everyone went away with enough juice to meet their needs. I'm hoping for a great evening of tasting in the months ahead.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 11 May 2017 7pm at the Civic Club in Hobart. If you would like more information please contact the for details.

If you are interested in joining the Fruit Winemaking association you can do so whilst a guest at one of our meetings or return a completed Membership invitation along with your Membership dues.
