Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Cidermakers Michael Pooley and John Lomax (both from Ironbridge, Shropshire) were two of those people whose passion for their work was totally infectious. They were cidermakers for over twenty years and during that time their well-attended apple day teaching courses and demonstrations of the craft at venues throughout the UK acquired a national reputation. They worked hard to change the perception of cider as a foul, overly strong brew, and to impart their knowledge to the masses on how to produce good quality cider and apple juice. They always made the point at their workshops that knowing something and not doing anything with that knowledge is the same as not having that knowledge in the first place, and urged their students to take their newly acquired cider-intelligence home with them and work with it. In 1999 they compiled this standard book about 'real' cidermaking, which is thorough, practical and inspiring. It is based on their combined experience and expertise and will satisfy the needs of both the amateur and would-be professional cidermaker.

Format: Paperback
If you want to know how to get started with making real cider, then this is the book for you.

This is a comprehensive English guide to producing good quality "hard" cider. The authors cover everything that someone new to cidermaking could need. The approach is very practical, easy to read and understand, and clearly the result of considerable experience with teaching cidermaking and making cider.

If I was starting out on cidermaking I'd buy this book, and then add "Craft cidermaking" by Andrew Lea. I think this combination has more practical beginners advice than Annie Proulx and Lew Nichols' book, although theirs has more specific advice on North American apple varieties and applejack.

Basically I think this is the best cider book to get started with.
