Will from The Weekend Homestead YouTube channel joins me to talk about cooking down apple butter, drilling into brick, and egress windows.
I talk with Will about what to do when you have too many apples? You make apple butter! The apple corer rig we talk about in the show https://amzn.to/2SmvIHZ I was wondering about using the Instant Pot my fav cooking machine, video here, to cook down the apples. No answers yet, what do you think?
We move into talking about my video on how to make hard cider, which is the easiest thing to brew.
Do you drill into the brick or the cement when hanging on a brick wall? I am a big fan of sleeved anchors to hang heavy stuff on brick or cement walls. I use what is generally called 'wiremold' or cable concealer to hide the TV wires on the brick.
What is a dumbwaiter? We talk a bit about that, I have seen several.
Will needs to buy a small generator. Do you buy the Honda or the Harbor Freight knock-off? Curious to hear what you think, let me know in the comments below.
I do have a Harbor Freight FLux Core Welder, which I like, here's a vid I did.
What is an egress window? Will had to install some in the basement rooms of his house. Pretty straightforward, but it helps to have a backhoe.

Please stop shopping at and recommending Midwest Supplies. They were purchased by ZX Ventures, an AB InBev company. It seems they are trying to conquer every beer market, including homebrew, There are lots of independent homebrewing shops, including in Brooklyn (e.g. Bitter and Esters). Try those instead. They generally offer the same sorts of help and you can spend hours hanging around those stores.
