Thanks WB. I was going to cider it then make some cider vinegar but distilling sounds better.

I am sure that you don't have any where that amount in your apple juice.Manufactures of apple juice use a "distructive" type juicer and they process many more pounds of apples daily than you are doing. If you still feel leary of your processing, toss it or make hard cider/apple wash and distill the wash.WBFrom: GGB <self.adhesive@...>

Can I ask please, is there any known hazard from putting quartered apples through a destructive grinding-type juicer pips and all? I have just read that apple seeds contain cyanide.. Is it true that I now have about 15 litres of cyanide-laced apple juice that I should not dare drink?
Carrying this to its logical conclusion, if true, could I ferment this stuff, distill and drink safely?
Thanks and best
