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

“Emma Christensen has assembled a trove of wisdom about the
art of cider making. She not only covers the techniques of making cider but also connects them to the flavors aspiring cider makers will want to reproduce. And true to its name, Modern Cider delves into the myriad innovations that have sparked the American cider revival; this is the most extensive, fact-filled, and user-friendly guide to cider making out there.”
—JEFF ALWORTH, AUTHOR OF CIDER MADE SIMPLE

“I wish there had been a resource as informative as Modern Cider when I first started making cider at home. This is a great tool for cider and DIY enthusiasts looking to hone their craft, and it raises awareness about the cider world overall—especially the importance of using high-quality apples with intention.”
—RYAN BURK, HEAD CIDER MAKER at ANGRY ORCHARD

“This is a bumper crop of unique and approachable recipes for budding home cider makers. Since it can be difficult to source distinctive apples, the tips on using Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus culture are especially helpful for adding character and complexity.”
­—ERIC WEST, DIRECTOR OF THE GREAT LAKES  INTERNATIONAL CIDER AND PERRY COMPETITION
