BX PRESS

BX Press, a family run cidery in the BX area of Vernon, B.C. upgraded to a Kreuzmayr Single Belt Press KEB 400 and a elevator/washer /grinder KWEM 1000 in 2016.

The BX Press Cidery started in 2014, making the natural and refreshing cider using a rack and cloth system, using the 30 varieties of apples grown right on the orchard. The all natural, branch to bottle ciders pressed from their own apples, and no added sugars, cider was popular quickly and sold out by the end of their first summer.

When they grew from 6,000 to 40,000 litres/year, they decided it was time to ‘hang up the cloth’ so to speak and to move into a Kreuzmayr set up.

I sat down with Melissa Dobernigg of BX Press to chat about the experience of upgrading from a rack and cloth press to a Single Belt Press.
