The Joy of Brewing Cider, Mead, and Herbal Wine: How to Craft Seasonal Fast-Brew Favorites at Home

More About This Title

From the book description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

You’re ready to try your hand at home brewing, but you want to try something unique—and you also have no idea where to start. This is the book for you. Broken into three sections—mead, cider, and herbal wine—you’ll learn what basic equipment you’ll need, what ingredients to have on hand, and author Nancy Koziol will walk you through each step of the process. Along the way, you’ll pick up some fun facts about ethical consumption, sustainable farming, and the science behind fermenting.

Whether you want to try a simple honey mead, a crisp apple or pear cider, or a wild wine with herbs foraged from your backyard, in these pages you’ll find the inspiration and instruction you need to follow through to the finished product. Many of these drinks are brewed in a matter of weeks rather than months, so you don’t even have to be particularly patient! Once you get the hang of the basics, try experimenting with the suggested seasonal additions, or whatever fruit, herb, or spice is ready for harvest (or on sale at the local market). Add some ginger to your cider, some blackberries to your wine, or some pumpkin to your mead for brews that are truly your own.

With a unique focus on local, seasonal produce and sustainable farming practices, this will appeal to seasoned brewers who are looking for something new as well as eco-conscious millennials ready to impress their friends on Instagram. Fascinating tidbits of trivia, information on health benefits, and a dash of humor make this book as entertaining as it is useful.

Have you ever wanted to make a true whiskey barrel stout, or an oak aged barleywine? We now have 5 gallon American Oak whiskey barrels from a leading craft distillery. These impart a deep whisky/bourbon-oak flavor and are perfect for aging your strong ales, and also ideal for sour ales.

These quality barrels were crafted in Minnesota by The Barrel Mill and have a Char level of 3. They come with either a wooden bung or a plastic bung, and also fit a #9 Stopper (not included) if you want to use these with an airlock (see at right).

These held Kings County Distilling Bourbon and Single Malt Whiskey, from 2014 to late February 2019 when they were dumped. They first held Bourbon for a couple years, then were dumped and refilled with Single Malt for another year or two. For more on the Kings County Distillery and their bourbon and whiskey, click HERE.

The pictured wood stand is optional, see a suitable stand at right.

NOTE: Pricing is for 1 barrel, three are shown to show you how they vary in appearance.
