Our Hard Cider Recipe Kit includes 3 yeast packets, and 3 sanitizer packets so you can make 3 gallons of dry sparkling apple cider with your own equipment. You bring the juice; we bring the rest. Gluten free hard cider is made with your choice of natural apple juice, unfiltered juice, or even spiced apple cider.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
This Recipe Kit includes the ingredients needed to make your own hard cider:
- A No-Nonsense Guide to Making Your own Hard Cider
- Hard Cider Recipe (Sanitizer x 3, Yeast x 3)
*Cider not included. This kit work 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.
I made a batch of hard cider with Welch's Concord Grape juice, an, believe me, it's better than ANY sparkling wine I've ever had! Can't wait to make my next batch with Dole Pineapple Juice!
Great for beginners, I even added black cherry Puree to mine for a different twist and it was phenomenal
The hard cider was very good, but unlike a beer kit, which provides all the ingredients needed, I need to keep trying different apple ciders as my base. There are so many apple ciders on the market, it will take some time to find just the right one to start the brew. This was my first hard cider, so I'll keep experimenting. But that's what's so great about brewing your own, the thrill of the hunt.
At first I thought the kit was a little skimpy, but now that I have made my first batch of apple-lime hard cider, I'm ready to make my next batch using grape juice to make a wine. I can't wait!
