The charming warming character of Cider House Select™ Spiced Apple Cider is perfect for the shorter days and cooler nights. Experience the essence of the fall harvest with a complex and elegant character full of apple, cinnamon, and a hint of spice. Sip, smell and savor the rich, aromatic fall flavors that warm you from the inside out. This cider is enjoyable chilled or as a warm mulled cider.
A refreshing, spritzy alternative to beer—mouthwatering cider with a boozy twist is delicious and lacks the bitterness of ale.
Striking a balance between scrumptiously sweet and tartly dry, hard cider carries an easy-drinking 5-7% alcohol content.
Served lightly carbonated, cider pairs exceptionally well with food. Fresh cheese, leafy greens, seafood morsels and anything slow-cooked, smoked or barbecued will perfectly complement the boozy apple nectar of fall.
Cider House Select™ Spiced Apple Cider is a crisp beverage enjoyed by beer and wine lovers alike.
This 6 gallon recipe kit is deliciously packed full of flavor, with juice made from apples ripe for the picking.
Note: All Cider House Select Kits require the addition of 2 pounds of corn sugar to reach their full alcohol potential

3.5 / 5.02 ReviewsNice kit, but I messed it up!Like the kit and the outcome. My wife and father love the final cider. Interestingly enough, my wife--who loves sweet drinks--found using the full packet of sweetener was too much!
As this was my first kit, I messed up and opened the package to check for the yeast. The juice concentrate was not separately bagged, and wound up being exposed to the air for a couple of days. While the final cider is still good, I think I will try again.February 15, 2017Purchased
3 months agoOverall its pretty good. Before drinking you should stir it in the bottle to get the sediment mixed up a little, otherwise you don't get the full flavor and its more like a watered down sparkling apple cider than a spiced cider. Its still a little on the lighter flavor, but pretty good. I gave it a three because I couldn't do 3.5. If it was more full bodied I would give it easily 4-5 stars. VERY EASY TO MAKE.November 24, 2016

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 7 answersDoes this kit come with the yeast? Or does it need to be purchased separately? If so which is recommended?BEST ANSWER: Yes it comes with yeast. I've actually bought this same kit many times from different vendors and I have never been disappointed. It has everything you need ingredient wise. Don't rehydrate the dry yeast either. Follow the instructions and just sprinkle it on the must like the directions say. No stirring required. From previous experience with this kit I can confidently say you won't be disappointed.Can the cider kit be put on tap or does it have to be bottledBEST ANSWER: I'm no expert, but here is what I have picked up. You can keg a cider. In fact it's one of the easier ways to do a carbonated cider. I understand natural carbonation in the bottle is a bit tricky not to end up with bottle bombs. The problem is in the shank and faucet. Cider is acidic and will apparently leach metals from the faucet and shank. The solution is either a plastic or stainless shank and faucet. I have wine on tap and replaced one of my taps with stainless. If you don't want sparkling wine/cider you will need to dispense with Nitrogen or keep the pressure really low.
