First squeezes, 2009

Squeezed 60 gallons today, filling both fridges. The first real run of
the season, as always, had a couple of gremlins, mostly uncentered
pressings. All was fixed pretty quick, and in the process I came to the
realization that the press can do better than it always has, pressing 20
gallons a whack instead of 15. This is going to make time management
and pressing efficiency so much easier this season. CSA still has a
couple of slots open, I'll be closing it next weekend. Anyone
interested? Fermentation stock is getting booked pretty quickly too,
get your name in while you can.
