Claude Jolicoeur, a passionate cider maker for around thirty years, discusses in this book the making of cider, from the establishment of the orchard to the bottling of all types of ciders. Beginners will learn the basic methods for making a first cider and, for experienced cider makers, the author explores more complex questions such as the analysis of musts and ciders, the balance of blends, the management of fermentations, and the organization of an artisanal cider house.
It studies apple mills and presses in detail, and offers guides for their manufacture. He is also interested in the specificities of production and the varieties of cider apples from the different cider-growing regions in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Canada. In this practical and illustrated manual, Claude Jolicoeur transmits to us the results of his research, his experiences and his enthusiasm for the art of cider making.

The author:

Claude Jolicoeur , then a young engineer, bought a property in Quebec in 1982 with land containing around thirty large, old abandoned apple trees. He takes care of them and they logically give him apples, apples with which he begins to make cider... Since then, his ciders have won several prizes and medals. He actively participates in discussion forums and is regularly invited to give talks at events, conventions and festivals.
