Growers from four orchards near Madison, Wisconsin provided 41 varieties of hard cider apples in the fall of 2017 for testing. Staff at the UW-Madison Food Science Fermentation Sciences Program pressed each variety separately and produced about a gallon of cider from each variety. Each single-varietal hard cider was tested in two ways to determine taste characteristics: first in the laboratory and then by at least one panel of tasters at four separate tastingevents held during the winter of 2017-18.
