Ooooh, curses on the dibs!! lol. Just out of curiosity, how much juice/kilo apples can be expected? I know it would vary apple to apple variety, but as a guide?

It does vary greatly (ripeness, fruit variety, and even method of extraction etc), but about 10 kgs of fruit gave me roughly 5 litres of juice when I did it last year. That was a really inefficient pressing method, too. I've read you can get up to 2/3 juice (1/3 pom).

Also, you can get a good cider result from using a mix of standard type apples- just needs a balance of sweet (any eating apple), tart (granny smith or similar), and bitter (crab apples).
