The new Mead & Cider production space will house a mix of 15 bbl conical fermenters and brite tanks for our cider and session mead fermentation and four sloped-bottom 2000L fermenters for our still mead production. Future plans include another 10 bbl foeder installed for our farmhouse/wild cider and mead experiments. In total, we will have over 3,400 gallons of fermentation capacity for mead and cider.
