Andrew Lea's book is a fantastic resource for the home and "up and coming" craft cidermaker alike. Given Andrew's history in the trade as a biochemist as well as running his own hobby orchard, he provide a plethora of information for the science geeks as well as the newcomer. In particular, the highlights on cider faults and also sulphiting and pH are brilliant. Of the 10+ cider books/manuals I own, I value this one the most.

Just enough science to make you feel you understand some of the chemistry that goes on during pressing and fermentation. The author certainly knows his stuff and if you want only one book on the subject, this is it.

This book is a must for anyone serious about their cider making. Andrew helped 'save' my first ever batch of cider some 10 years ago and I've not looked back since. An expert in his field.

I've made quite reasonable cider for a couple of years and decided it was time to check out an "instruction manual". Although I have read it only once and therefore only partly digested the contents - it has helped reassure me as to some of the stuff I do and point me towards what I hope will be better brews. It has encouraged me to buy some real cider apple trees too.

I only started cider making a year ago, and bought the book "real cider making on a small scale" which is very good , this book however is the bible of cider making, andrew lea spent many years working at the long ashton research station, in the cider section and even longer making his own cider, for the amateur or professional it tells you the legal requirements, how to customise, and what to do when things go wrong it really is the book to own if you make your own cider

There is a core running through the book that gives the basics but with enough side shoots to enliven anyone's interest. Blows away lots of myths and is well written for a broad audience. Not in the least patronising and mostly keeps away from the prejudices of the fanatic. I would say that this is the starter text for anyone who wishes to begin or widen their knowledge of craft cider making based on sound scientific principles. It also engenders experimentation - a must for anyone who wants to really understand and improve their product. Excellent and full marks to Andrew.

I bought this for my husband to go with his cider making. Have not used it yet but seems to cover everything needed.
