Some might notice a theme, lately, as I finished yesterday reading Cider: Making, Using & Enjoying Sweet & Hard Cider, another how-to book that details not only cider-making, but also applejack and other apple-y drinks. Again, they repeat several times that some of the subjects discussed are illegal in some jurisdictions, like, say, the United States, so don't be naughty, but here's how you do this...

I don't think I'm going to make any cider, or wine, and I'm allergic to beer, and I'm not likely to build a still, or make applejack with the freezer, but I'm finding reading about the chemistry and biology of the whole thing rather interesting.

On another hand, I am likely to attempt to ferment some apple juice, since I have several apple trees out there...

Was this more of a science/craft book and less of a "magic and art" book? (on a brewing side, I'd ask "is it more like Miller than Papazian?") It would be nice to read a good book or two about cider making before I try. :)

I'd say the former, rather than the latter.
