About Michael J. Pooley

Cidermakers Michael Pooley and John Lomax (both from Ironbridge, Shropshire) were two of those people whose passion for their work was totally infectious. They were cidermakers for over twenty years and during that time their well-attended apple day teaching courses and demonstrations of the craft at venues throughout the UK acquired a national reputation. They worked hard to change the perception of cider as a foul, overly strong brew, and to impart their knowledge to the masses on how to produce good quality cider and apple juice. They always made the point at their workshops that knowing something and not doing anything with that knowledge is the same as not having that knowledge in the first place, and urged their students to take their newly acquired cider-intelligence home with them and work with it. In 1999 they compiled this standard book about 'real' cidermaking, which is thorough, practical and inspiring. It is based on their combined experience and expertise and will satisfy the needs of both the amateur and would-be professional cidermaker.
