Maybe we should make it a meet up!Dr. Malone also recommended a colleague for questions regarding specific varieties of apples for cider. Dr. Chris Gottschalk. Perhaps I'll have to see if Dr. Gottschalk would be willing to share some advice for us later, as well.And, of course, Dr. Malone kindly offered to field questions or try to get you pointed in the right direction.
