Cider: Making, Using & Enjoying Sweet & Hard Cider - Proulx & Nichols
Make your own cider! Annie Proulx and Lew Nichols take you step-by-step through the cider making process, covering everything from the various types of apple presses to how to filter, fine, rack, and store your cider.
They also provide recipes for making six types of cider---still, sparkling, champagne, barrel, French, and flavoured---and advise you on which apples to use to achieve particular flavour qualities.
There is even a chapter on making cider vinegars and brandy and using cider in your cooking. Finally, Proulx and Nichols show you how to grow and maintain your own home apple orchard and build your own cider making equipment.
