The C Word

Jaega Wise of Wild Card presents a brewer's guide to modern cider.

Foxwhelp, cat's head, sheep's nose, hen's turd, yellow willy .... did you know there are over 200 varieties of cider apple? Jaega Wise of Wild Card brewery knows her beer and hops, but not so much her apple types. With cider production in full autumnal flow, Jaega visits three very different cider makers - Gospel Green, Westons and Pulpt - to discover that there is no such thing as the typical cider drink. With cunning insights from the moustachioed ciderologist Gabe Cook, this is the programme for everyone who has tried a little scrumpy but really needs a refresher course.

The producer in Bristol is Miles Warde
