Fresh and effervescent, tart but sweet, boozy yet sophisticated, hard cider is the perfect refreshment in any season. Modern Cider features recipes with intriguing flavors that are incredibly easy to make, whether it's beginner's Supermarket Cider, fruity Cherry Pomegranate Cider, beer-lover's Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cider, sweet-tooth-tempting Apple Pie Dessert Wine, kid-friendly Sparkling Cran-Apple Juice, or DIY Apple Scrap Cider Vinegar.
Homebrew guru and True Brews author Emma Christensen takes home cooks on a tour through basic hard ciders, traditional ciders from around the world, cider cousins like perry, and innovative ciders that use beer-brewing techniques and alternative fruits. With Christensen's simple, friendly tone and 1-gallon and 5-gallon options, this book's recipes prove that cider-making is truly the easiest home brewing project––much easier than beer––with delicious, fruity results! So whether you're a home cook trying your hand at a batch of simple Farmers' Market Cider, a city dweller fresh from a day of apple picking in the countryside, or a homebrewer ready to move on to the next frontier, Modern Cider is your guide.
