Petaluma, CA, September 17, 2013–Well known for its annual Fermentation Handbook, Scott Laboratories announced the release of its first ever Cider Handbook. The 60-page Handbook contains products, articles, and protocols specific to the cider industry. With cider sales in the U.S. tripling since 2007, Scott recognized that this growing market needed attention.
“We really want to offer products and knowledges pecific to this market,” commented Rebekka Swanson, inside fermentation specialist at Scott Laboratories. “This beverage has a long history, and there are unique challenges with making cider. It’s different than either winemaking or brewing. We want to acknowledge those challenges and help provide resources.”
Producing the handbook was an educational experience for Scott Labs as well, who for the past 80
years has supplied products and services to wineries, breweries, and distilleries across North America.
Utilizing internal lab capabilities, as well as supplier R&D teams, numerous trials are already underway to learn more about which fermentation products work best with cider.
Scott Laboratories continues to meet the needs of the beverage industry with innovative products and
solutions. It operates two main offices in Petaluma and a satellite facility in Healdsburg. For more information regarding Scott Laboratories and the services and products that it supplies, please visit
