Format: Paperback
Andrew Lea is a recognised authority on the science of cidermaking, and every sentence in this book is clearly the product of that understanding coupled to practical experience. The book expands upon the information provided on Andrew's own web site and provides the novice with sensible, clear guidelines for producing good cider, from the initial planting of the cider apple trees through to the bottling of the finished cider.

Since the early 20th C French cidermaking text by Warcollier (translated by Charley) there have been few books on the science and practice of cidermaking, and of these Andrew Lea's book is probably one of the best. It is not a recipe book, but if you have already had a few attempts at cidermaking (maybe using "Real Cidermaking on a Small Scale" by Pooley and Lomax - both great books) and want to take it another step towards producing true award winning craft cider, this book is a valuable (and cheap) addition to your cider library.

Craft Cider Making can be read at a longish single sitting, the style is simple and complex concepts are understandable. Although the definitive guide to cider-making is still to be written, I value this cider book more highly that anything else written in the last 50years. Thanks Andrew for a great little book ....

Most comprehensive book on cider-making that I've come across. Focuses on the technical elements as well as the art of cider-making. Very specific. Geared toward cider makers with their own orchard, as it includes a chapter on planting and growing, however it's also a good resource for anyone interested in learning the basics of the craft.

This is a very good book that does a pretty good job of covering the apple growing and cider making process. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that it focuses on English trees, conditions rather than in N. America.
