From the description and look-inside pages I was expecting more of a step-by-step guide. It's more along the lines of these are the steps rather than do this, do this next, etc. One would really need an understanding of the process of making cider to understand why they are telling you about what they are telling you when. Also, there's an assumption by the authors that you will be dealing in truckload quantities, i.e. "To treat 50 gallons of cider..." and very little for the novice who is looking for some hand-holding and advice.

That being said, there's an awful lot of information in the book on everything from apple varieties to how to freeze the lees out of champagne style cider. As my cider making experience grows I'm sure I'll appreciate the book more.

In short, I think there are better books for people like me who are just getting started but this is a book that will prove more useful over time.

This book has most of the information you would need. A detailed plan to build your own press is included, but so are pointers on obtaining the services of a local orchard's press. Advice is given in selecting apples to grow, rootstock considerations, planting and soil fertility, while also suggesting that others might have some worthwhile advice, like local growers or nurserymen. (I personally suggest, for northern growers, St. Lawrence Nurseries.) Descriptions for classic American apples used in cider are geared toward the cider-maker or grower, and since many of these cannot be grown succesfully in Canada, there are apple recommendations for cider-making in Canadian Provinces. Mention is made of European cider apples, but since these are hard to come by (another suggestion for a source of trees is Cummins Nursery - they also have a smart range of dwarfing rootstock options,) why not grow some of your own cider varieties from seed? A good description and illustration of grafting is given, which can be a good way to replicate trees that you've found to be useful in cider-making. I find in this book, possibly because it is a 3rd edition and written by a pair of authors, that different perspectives are explored: As a cider-maker, do you blend and press your apples all together, or, can you achieve greater control by making individual presses and blending them at bottling? All options are explored. Instructions for making apple cider vinegar are here. There are also, for historical purposes, descriptions of how apple brandy and applejack are made, as well as some great-sounding recipes utilizing cider. Results of a tasting-panel sampling of several commercial hard ciders is shown, along with an introduction to having your own sampling, or taking individual tasting notes of ciders. A few sections could use a mild editing by a horticulturist; an example being about pruning: they say to make pruning cuts flush to the trunk, but actually it is best to leave that small projection where the branch is flaring out (the collar), else it doesn't heal quickly. But it would also be a mistake to leave too much stub. This is why I said at the beginning, that this book provides most of the information you need. Other sources might be University Extension bulletins or a good book on growing apples organically, which makes sense for cider-making, not requiring picture-perfect apples. Of course, there are probably dozens more known apple varieties that would make fine cider that the size of this book just didn't allow to be described. Another book I've read mentions that 'King David' makes a great hard cider all by itself. Sixty varieties are described in "The Best Apples To Buy And Grow", which I've also reviewed, and might be a good companion book to Cider.

I purchased this book to learn more about making cider, and this book did not disappoint. From the history of cider making to easy to understand reicpes for making your own ciders, this book has it all. This book is loaded with expert advice on cidermaking.
For those wanting more the authors go into what apples trees to buy to start your very own orchard, types of apple presses ,cider making equipement and the laws governing Cider making.

With fall in the air and the local orchards loaded with apples what are you waiting for?

I haven't finished it yet, but so far it has been a very comprehensive source on all things cider. After making two 5 gallon kit batches, I bout some unpasteurized cider online for $11.99/gal. I needed 6 to make the liquid yeast starter and do a 2-stage fermentation. It was preservative free and arrived frozen with ice packs so it turned out great. Much better than Cider House or Mangrove Jacks. While there's no substitute for hands on learning from a pro, this book takes you from how to make the best out of expensive kits, brew great cider from an orchard's blend, what kind of cider you can use from any grocery store (absorbic acid is the only acceptable preservative, not potassium sorbate or benzoate - they kill yeast,) all the way to growing cider and eating apple trees and using a crusher and press to make a batch from scratch. And he has a chapter on yeast harvesting, so once your trees bear fruit (3-4 years,) all you'll have to pay for is gas or electricity and some yeast nutrient!

My local brew shop, Alternative Beverage - www.ebrew.com - has an annual cider day where one can learn all things cider and get cider juice for $5/gallon. Even less if you bring your own buckets like me. Anyway, buy this book if your interested in brewing cider and don't waste your $ on Amazon! Go to Walmart or your local farmers market and look for a cider blend that's preferably unpasteurized and preservative-free, but a pasteurized cider with only absorbic acid will work fine. Try making a gallon batch first with some dry cider, wine or ale yeast like SafAle US-04. Open the packet and weigh it out. Then use 1/4 of it. I like to use a 2 gallon bucket for 1 week, then rack to a 1 gallon jug for 10 days. I usually keg mine and use a BeerGun to bottle, but bottle priming produces the exact same results. I'm a purist so I make my yeast starters with a 1:1 cider to water ratio & a tsp. of yeast nutrient. But it's up to you. If your trying to clone a Redd's Apple Ale, use WLP001 or US-05 ale yeast instead. It's all a matter of perspective

Very informative for the beginner. But it isn't a cookbook of recipes for variety of popular ciders.It will tell you everything you need to do to figure them out, though.
