The only book you will need to make successful cider at home.,
This review is from: Real Cider Making on a Small Scale (Paperback)
I have been making approx 20 gallons per year of cider for the last three years,using only windfall cookers, eaters and crabs. I have produced superb cider with virtually no waste. This is entirely thanks to this book.
I always keep this book to hand, as a reference, whether pressing, fermenting,racking or bottling.
This book is the perfect balance between craft and science. Crushing apples with a timber post in a bucket, is not as suggested elsewhere, a hippy style communal event- but is in fact an entirely practical (and cheap) method of preparing apples for pressing.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone contemplating making their own cider. In fact I would not recommend starting without it
