“Whether it’s a way to make cider from apples, mead from honey, or gin infused with rose hips, Meyer is still at it, at the still, distilling step-by-step knowledge into inebriating wisdom.”

I have used this book as a guideline to make wine and each time it has come out perfect. I have learned quite a bit and have recommended it to my friends.
