Cider Made Simple
In this book, beer writer Jeff Alworth turns his attention to cider. This is a book about the appreciation and understanding of cider rather than an instruction manual on how to make it. Alworth covers the basics and then describes the character and production of the major cider styles: English, French, Spanish, American and the ice ciders of Quebec. He travels to each major area and visits with renowned cider makers, highlighting what makes each style stand out and giving a good overview of its culture and production. The book is concise, yet well written and informative.
