With expert advice and clear, step-by-step instructions, "The Big Book of Cidermaking" provides the skills that readers need to make their own favorite cider, whether sweet, dry, fruity, farmhouse, hoppy, barrel-aged or fortified.
Years of experience in growing an orchard and producing cider have enabled the Shockeys to develop the best possible formula for cider making, whether it's made from freshly picked apples or store-bought juice.
This book explores in depth the phases of fermentation, as well as the array of possible flavours and styles. It features cider recipes ranging from cornelian cherries to ginger, as well as different styles such as New England, Spanish and late season.
