It's A Medicinal Tonic. It's A Cocktail Mixer. It's Both…and More!

Before we can start pressing, we have to pump steeped Fire Cider into a secondary container.

Look at all that golden Fire Cider pulp!  We try to catch every drop and each IBC will fill 6 of the white boxes.

Working the juice press!  It takes anywhere from 4 to 6 hours to press out the 6 boxes full of potent Fire Cider pulp.

While I run the juice press, extracting all the awesome Fire Cider flavors, Dana and Brian add the honey.   At the end of the day we have a finished batch that is ready to bottle.   I hope you enjoyed this photo tour of a day in the making of Fire Cider!
