To make the very best cider--whether for yourself, your family and friends, or for market--you first need a deep understanding of the processes involved, and the art and science behind them. Fortunately, The New Cider Maker's Handbook is here to help. Author Claude Jolicoeur is a well-known and award-winning amateur cider maker with an inquiring, scientific mind. His book combines the best of traditional knowledge and techniques with the best modern practices to provide today's enthusiasts all they need to produce high-quality ciders.

For most of its early history, America was awash in cider, the most popular drink of the 18th and 19th centuries. Originally a farmer’s drink, it was a staple on farms and plantations in the colonies and an intimate part of everyday life for all citizens from Revolutionary War soldiers to elite landowners and officials. John Adams drank it every morning to settle his stomach, and politicians gave it away at rallies to gain popularity. Although not much is know about the author, Jonathan Buell’s guide includes everything you need to know about homemade cider from growing the apples to building cider mills and presses, fermenting and refining the cider, converting it to wine and champagne, and creating summer beverages and fancy vinegars. This edition of The Cider Maker’s Manual was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.
