Product description

Cider has recently seen a surge of popularity both in versions produced by large breweries and by small producers and home cider-makers who value taste and complexity. This book takes us through the history and practicalities, and introduces the concepts and techniques of craft cider production. It looks at the different styles of cider, and the effect of fruit variety, climate and orchard location on the finished drink, and the book concludes with a suggested method for the home cider maker. This is the perfect introduction for anyone considering cider making, and a fascinating explanation of the history and process of real cider production for anyone who just enjoys drinking it.
