    One thought on “Cider”

    1. The most well-known book about North American cidermaking. Lots of information for getting started, although it could use an update. It contains information on growing apples as well - but if you are serious about growing them you should get Michael Phillips The Holistic Orchard for that. Don't listen to the people who say it's too technical or too focused on large scale production. If it's too technical for you, you shouldn't be making cider because you need to know the basic chemistry in order [...]

    2. This book is completely out of scale for the homebrewer. If this were advertised as a book on "how to establish a Cidery" which happened to have info useful to the homebrewer I would have cut it a lot more slack, but as advertised it's deeply disappointing. While I did enjoy the level of detail regarding some aspects of brewing such as the importance of acidity, the 50 page "how to start your own orchard" section was a complete waste of time, as were the neurotically detailed breakdowns of commo [...]

    3. This inexpensive book by Annie Proulx and Lew Nichols is positively enlightening. I bought it at a local supply shop without checking reader reviews, which is rather unlike me. Getting home, I checked the reviews and became a little nervous seeing comments about not being suitable for a home brewer, of being a waste, of going in depth in areas of little interest, that there wasn’t a simple “recipe”, etc.Having read the book, I see some of what they were saying. The book goes much farther t [...]

    4. This is possibly the most informative book on cider making I've ever come across. Admittedly, it's aimed at North American readers, but I still found plenty of fascinating and relevant information that I can adapt and use on the other side of the world in Tasmania AU. I picked this up secondhand and my intention was to use it as a reference book, something to dip into as I needed to look particular things up, but it's incredibly well written and readable - I found myself engrossed in the text an [...]

    5. Great apple tree / cider reference work. Some parts could use elaboration/direct citation. E.g. the list of what used barrels to use/what used barrels to not use for cider does not explain why other types of barrels should be avoided, or why the types of barrels named are OK to use for cider (see p. 19). There is a strong emphasis on North American cider and trees, and a decent amount of Canadian=specific content. While I think there could be improvements, I am not aware of a better general cide [...]

    6. It's fine. But I didn't find it to be very practical. If I wanted to establish an orchard and a production facilityBut I don't.

    7. I really expected this book to be THE DEFINITIVE book on cider-making. And I think that many people would say that it was. And I might even agree with them, except to say that it didn’t tell me how to make a very small batch of cider from start to finish, which is what I really needed to know.This book is packed with information. It has a detailed history of cider-making. It goes into how to plant and maintain a cider apple orchard. It provides instructions on how to dig your own cider cellar [...]

    8. This is an exhaustive treatise on every aspect of apple cider. I was really just looking for a few pointers to improve my own cider-making efforts - what I got was enough scholarly work to turn me into a professional cider maker. There is a whole lot more to making a batch of cider than grinding and pressing a bushel or two of apples and collecting and packaging the juice. The book's focus is mainly hard cider - every aspect from fruit selection, sanitation practices, equipment maintenance, ferm [...]

    9. A very good and complete text. Definitely intended for a professional producer and not a homebrewer. I learned quite a bit on cooperage and barrel maintenance. Also quite a bit of information on orchard keeping, tree grafting, and many cider making apples from both Europe and the Americas. I am not positive, but I feel that the vast majority of the information in this text is a bit dated at this point (I am not sure that several of the apple varietals still exist). A very detailed book, but prob [...]

    10. I love cider so I was looking forward to reading this. Even if I never make my own cider learning about the process is interesting. Unfortunately, this book didn't really deliver.It was maddeningly specific in some instances while being equally vague in others. It would have benefitted from many more pictures and usually the pictures that were there weren't very detailed. Frequently they used terminology without defining it. I often could figure out the definition from context but the author sho [...]

    11. I'm not too far in this book, but I'm thinking maybe I don't really want to grow my own apples and make my own cider after all. It sounds pretty involved. Also, as a sucker for the aesthetic, I'd really want to age my cider in wooden barrels. The chapter dedicated to these vessels sounds like caring for them is a hobby in its own right.Having finished this book, I think it's organization was a little off. That said, it gave detailed instructions on making a still so it can't be that bad. I think [...]

    12. Write a reviewVERY detailed and informative. I did not know so much was involved in cider makingbut it does explain the flavors I have experienced in home and commercial cider. If only I had an orchard or if apples were cheaper. Lots of information on distilling, which I was surprised about with the legal issues. I'm going to give a shot a growing apple-crabs this year.

    13. Don't believe the covere author's goal is not to make cider making "simple", it is to be thorough. And it is - including how to fashion your own parts for some of the cider making equipment. I get the sense she could talk about it for hours, which is not a bad idea. A great resource for those who want to know more about how it all works.

    14. Cider: Making, Using, and Enjoying Sweet and Hard Cider by Annie Proulx (Storey Publishing 1983) (641.3411). Am I to understand that, in addition to being a fantastic author, Annie Proulx is also a vitner? Well, well. She continues to become more interesting. My rating: 7/10, finished 2015.

    15. Great book. Was surprised to find that it got in to the apple-growing side of things. I was expecting to have to dig for that information elsewhere. Actually, the whole piece of work was quite well-rounded and informative. Now it's time to get elbow deep in apple guts

    16. There was a ton of information on setting up a home cider orchard, not really something I'll be doing any time soon. I would have appreciated more about the homebrewing process for cider and different style guidelines and tasting features. Not a bad book, just not as relevant as I was hoping.

    17. I ended up skimming parts of this, only because it's written for someone with more serious cider-making aspirations---there are chapters about e.g. 50-gallon oak barrel management and planting your own orchard. Lots of interesting information, but not really aimed at the 5-gallon homebrewer.

    18. A. Proulx is one of my very favorite contemporary authors. I believe I've read all her other works, which have always inspired such awe for her style, breadth of range, depth of treatment and just plain originality.

    19. Lots of information. Targeted more to people with an orchard and making large batches, but still good info.

    20. Good book on the subject, though definitely geared towards a more insidious angle. I was interested in the home-brewing side of things; though there is certainly a lot of overlap.
