“Every little master has his tiny hand-book”. This is a popular phrase in Spanish used when people has different ways to carry out the same process. Everyone has their own tricks, would be the translation.
Since I am decided to (try to) make my own homemade craft cider, I’ve been looking for practical information here and there, being the internet the most important source. But as with ciders, I both like old fashioned and modern stuff, local and international.
I recently dusted off an old book from the family library. It is called “The Cider Makers’ Manual”, it was published in 1869 in Buffalo (USA) and the author is J.S. Buell. It will be, along with my notebook, the hand-book of this newbie cider maker.
Good read for the weekend. Back to the roots!
