I’ve always been a hands-on person with a passion for creating things. That passion has manifested itself in hard cider, not apple juice, but the fermented drink of our forefathers. My passion for hard cider is so strong, I’ve started planning vacations around sampling ciders. I also hold some type of hard cider themed party every month, which allows me to reveal my latest hard cider recipe.
This doesn’t even touch on the time I spend picking and pressing apples as well as fermenting, filtering, and packaging hard cider. Yes, I enjoy drinking hard cider, but creating it is what I truly find intoxicating. It’s why I decided to write a book. I wanted to share my passion. It covers my hard cider journey and walks you through the cider making process. It includes hard cider recipes as well and food recipes that use hard cider and pair well with cider.
Here are what some people are saying about it.
I’ve been home brewing for 30 years and consider myself an advanced brewer. I recently started making ciders because my wife enjoyed several pints of cider during our trip to the UK last December. I also haven’t found anything locally that compares to English cider 😞. So far your book has been an excellent read. I was in the process of figuring out a few things you covered in detail in your book. I’ll be busy this weekend seeing how I can implement them in my next batch of cider. I would highly recommend this book for people who want to make a balanced cider. If you don’t like Boozy and sweet ciders this is a must read!S. Burke
I was hooked at the introduction, your words are so familiar to how cider grasped me and how I view the relation to terroir and natural processes. All I can do now is say you’ve made a wonderful guide for home cidermakers and have added lots of encouraging words and even helpful try-yourself cider recipes!Elegast Cidery
