Tim Larsen was at the all day event, Pour the Core in Brooklyn, NYC waiting on a long line of thirsty cider drinkers. During a the break between sessions I was able to squirrel away with Tim in a back corner of the Brooklyn Expo Center and chat Snowdrift ciders and their perry.
In this chat Tim and I discuss:
Snowdrift Ciders – see below the 9 ciders that recently all won awards in April of 2016.
cidermaking components such as,
- anthocyanin pigments generate the rose hue in rosé cider during cidermaking.
- polyphenolics in cider
- Procyanins – are members of the proanthocyanidin (or condensed tannins) class of flavonoids.
- Bittersharp ( low in tannin and high in acid) vs Bittersweet (high in tannin, low in acid and high in sugar) apples for cider
He didn’t mention it, but we know the following medals were give this spring to the cidery:
