Our Hard Cider Kit comes with all of the supplies you need to make THREE 1-gallon batches of dry sparkling cider at home:

*Cider not included. This kit works with any Apple Juice or Cider.
*Not just for apple juice. Use this recipe kit to transform other fruit juices into fruit wine. We recommend using at least a 50% apple juice base to guarantee enough fermentable sugars for the yeast. Try half tart cherry juice or half pear juice or whatever your favorite flavor is! Citrus juice is not recommended because it’s super acidic and the sugar content can be a bit low. So steer clear of orange, lemon, lime or grapefruit juices.

Simple to use, clear instructions, produces a great cider. I used honey crisp apples and blood orange! Delicious!
For someone looking to get involved into hard cider brewing as a hobby, the kit works wonderfully! However, I would have enjoyed some more literature on the process of hard cider making.
The directions were good and it was not difficult to follow. Only trouble I had was getting the siphon to run. The plastic clip was not tight enough. I ended up gerryrigging it. My hard cider is in the bottle carbonating stage. Check with me in 8 days!
Very easy to follow and had a great end result! Will definitely be purchasing again.
