From growing and caring for apples, to equipment and processes for different kinds of cider

Fully revised and updated, this guide offers step-by-step instruction for small scale cider making. It retains the best of traditional practice but also draws on modern understanding of orcharding and fermentation science. Primarily for small scale makers ranging from a couple of apple trees to several acres of orchard, and hoping to make between 10 and 10,000 liters, it includes instructions on how to make still, dry cider; sparkling, sweetened, blended, and keeved versions; and unfermented apple juice, cider vinegar, and perry.
