This fall I am looking to make a batch of cider or 2. I recently moved into a place with 2 apples trees, so I'll already have the apples. What juicing or extraction methods do you guys use? I was thinking just buy a cheap juicer off kijiji, but I have my doubts those things can handle 5 to 10 gallons of apples at once. I have seen some people pulping their apples and then pressing. Just putting feelers out there, maybe if someone has some kit they might be interested in processing my apples for a fee (or free apples)?

I've seen youtube videos where people have repurposed (new) garbage disposals to pulp the apples before pressing. You can purchase a dedicated apple grinder, but they are a little pricey. Pressing is typically done with a basket press like the ones used for pressing grapes.
