Brewing With Stina: An Apple a Day
Last weekend I took time off from work to go to Spokane to see my parents and help my sister (Siv) and her husband (Dave) press cider. While I was away, I dreamt my filing backlog mysteriously disappeared, it did not. I did have some spare time to read this book. I know many people think that making a cider means pitching some yeast in some juice. And you are right. But since I want to make it sound much more interesting, I am including the style guidelines along with my favorite cider picks (courtesy the BJCP).
So, for those of you who are staying in this weekend, or going out, I recommend:
Eating a bratwurst but not in a beer mood: Dry English Cider.
Skipping dessert but still want something sweet: Raspberry Cider.
Wanting to impress your friend by serving smelly cheese: A French Cider.
PS: I want to thank Rita K. for guest authoring last Monday's "A View from the Stacks" for me.
