2nd Annual Cider Salon
Come join us for an informative, fun and tasty look at cider and apples. Our speakers are knowledgeable folks from the craft cider industry with interesting stories to tell. And there will be great food to sample in association with these discussions.
We will be joined by Gidon Coll of Original Sin Cider who will be bringing diverse heritage apples for tasting. Learn about red fleshed apples, crab apples and their extraordinary histories. As a very special treat there will be an opportunity to taste single source ciders made with some of these apples.
We will be also be joined by Ryan Burk of Angry Orchards experimental orchard Innovation Cidery. Ryan is also focusing on ciders made with heritage cider apples grown in NY State. They are gradually modifying their orchards to include more cider apples. He is crafting small batch ciders focusing on wild fermentation at cool temperatures and barrel aging.
More details on each panel:
Session 1 - Heritage Apples @1PM
Gidon Coll of Original Sin Cider will be teaching us about heritage apples used in cider making, and participants can see and taste these apples. Several single apple ciders will be presented allowing comparison of the apple taste to the fermented apple cider. We will also be tasting some of these apples in pastry tarts allowing comparisons of cooked apples.
Discussion of taste will proceed with the presentation of Darlene Hayes, author of Cider Cocktails - Another Bite of the Apple, and her extensive knowledge of cider apples grown in California.
Session 2 - Cider Fermentation
We'll welcome Eli Cayer of Urban Farm Fermentory (Portland, Maine), who will share his expertise in approaches to fermentation, focusing on adding flavors during conditioning of his ciders. We hope to taste ciders conditioned on sumac and on seaweed; the latter is expected to be a potentially unique pairing for Japanese food. An overview of fermentation with tasting will be provided by Ryan Burk from his position heading the experimental arm of Angry Orchard Ciders which is doing small batch fermentation at its Innovation Cidery in Walden, NY.
