Praise

 “Beyond Modern Cider’s clear instruction is a beautiful array of recipes, both traditional and ingeniously new, that showcase just versatile home brews can be.”
 —JENNY MCGRUTHER, AUTHOR OF NOURISHED KITCHEN

“I never knew how much I wanted to make cider until I read this book. Now that I know how easy it is, it’s become an obsession.”
AKI KAMOZAWA, AUTHOR OF IDEAS IN FOOD

“ Whether you’re completely new to cider or you’re an absolute fanatic looking to up your cider-making game, Emma Christensen’s written a recipe that’ll get you excited for your next (or first) batch. From choosing the perfect blend of apples to re-creating traditional styles to spicing your cider into something truly funky, Modern Cider  lets cider be as simple as you like and as creative as you can imagine.”
—STEPHEN VALAND, CO-OWNER AND FOUNDER OF BROOKLYN BREW SHOP
