Ever wonder how to add things like yeast, mangos, cherries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, hops, and other adjuncts to 2000 gallons of cider? You're looking at it. It is a bit of a scary 15 foot climb up our rolling safety steps which is a little like an ill-tempered bucking bronco.
This top hatch also houses the airlock which allows the carbon dioxide produced by the yeast out of the tank while not letting atmospheric air in. During fermentation, the yeast gobble up the natural sugars in apple juice and produce ethyl alcohol (the stuff that makes you happy) and CO2.
Have a fun day everyone. 🙂🇺🇸🥂
