Any one got any on the go ? Just finished prepping the first 15 litres, waiting for it to cool now.

Won't be long before I wanna start on the scrumpy.

I've been lucky then, last three years have all given excellent crops, I thought this year was looking poor but they really came on well.

Same as Rabid. Branches are breaking with the weight of fruit. It's hopeless though as no one seems to want them. Doesn't anyone make chutney or jam anymore? I'm doing puddings, pies and as many bits and pieces as possible but I'll never use them all. Jok.

I know the feeling jok, I've had a lot of branches snap this year, been trying to get some weight off them, hence the wine, looking forward to trying some scrumpy this year.
