"All around the world, the public's taste for fermented cider has been growing more rapidly than at any time in the past 150 years. At its best, cider is a pure, healthy beverage that reflects both the skill of the cider maker and the quality of the fruit that's used to make it.

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. From deep, comprehensive information on all aspects of fermentation to advice on the best apples to grow or source for cider to instructions on how to build your own grater mill or cider press, the author's experience and enthusiasm shine through. Novices will appreciate the overview of the cider-making process that's presented in Part I. But as they develop their skills and confidence, the more in-depth and technical parts of the book will serve as aninvaluable reference that will be consulted again and again"--

Since then, his ciders have earned many awards and medals at competitions, including a Best of Show at the prestigious Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition (GLINTCAP). Claude actively participates in discussions on forums like the Cider Digest, and is regularly invited as a guest speaker to events such as the annual Cider Days festival in western Massachusetts. He lives in Quebec City.

It is usually eight or ten inches high, about two inches in diameter, of rather thick glass, with a broad foot to stand safely, and a nose or lip to pour out conteuts. Vinous.

For cider-making purposes the apple may be considered as a fruit consisting of solid substance or parenchyma not soluble, and of juice, which is water holding in solution saccharines, organic acids, extractives, and a little potash, lime, and" phosphorus. After being expressed the juice contains also another material, very important in cider-making, though so minute in quantity as to be imperceptible to the naked eye. It exists on the surface of the fruit, or it may be obtained from the air in the process of grinding and pressing. That substance is ferment, upon which the change from natural juice to cider depends. It is upon the varying proportions to each other of these materials in their juices that the relative qualities and value of apples for cider-making depend. If the saccharines are in high proportion, the cider will be strong; if low, it will be weak, because all alcoholic Btrength comes from saccharines alone. If the free acids are in excess the cider will be high-flavored, but excessively hard; if they are deficient, while the combined acids are present in due proportion, the flavor will be less pronounced and without hardness; if both are deficient the cider will be flavorless, flat, and iusipid. If the extractives are insufficient...
