Well sorry to leave you hangin' here, fellas.  I was so busy running the gear that I only had time to pose for one picture, and I'm sure I looked like a total goon.  We were really just juicing the apples my sister and her husband had gathered.  I was hoping to juice mine this weekend, but it looks like we'll be focusing on sauce and rings. 

Next weekend will be the grand ciderfest, and I'll be sure to take some shots and post them.  Cheers.

I shall never hop a cider.  Yuck.

I have tasted many Belgian yeast ciders.  They do NOT taste Belgiany.  Sorry.

BOTH of these!  ^^^^
Yep. Yeast flavors are all about precursors and cider has different components available than wort. Same thing with the descriptors for wine yeast since grapes are different than apples. Not that they don't work, you just can't go by the descriptions.
