Not sure if I will do this again.  Every time I've used their cider, I get a really sulfery fermentation.  Anyone with the same or opposite experience?

Never sulfury for me.  Of course, I rack about three times over 6 months before I package.  That said... I'm going to try for Uncle John's bulk cider buy again this year (missed it last year).  Want something different than "off-the-shelf" cider.

Okay it was probably just something in my process.  Its worth the drive.  My favorite is their heirloom blend + a clean yeast or wild yeast if you're feeling lucky.  Drinking the last of last years right now.  I used a white wine yeast on this batch and the esters are just distracting from the very nice blend.

The batch I got a couple of years ago was VERY sulfery, as in open the fermentor and rotten eggs everywhere.  I did a little searching and copper bonds with the sulfur dioxide, so I put a bunch of copper tubing I had sitting around (after cleaning and sanitizing) and it went away in a week or so.  Turned out very nice.
