This kit worked very well, and made an excellent dry cider. We did add a small amount of the little "sweetener" packet, not realizing what it was. We immediately regretted it as we discovered it was some type of artificial sweetener (which we despise).
This packet was unlabeled other than "sweetener". If it has been labelled, we would not have added any. We will use the other wonderful quality items, but our first gallon of cider is a bust. Undrinkable.
The brew came out good and was all around easy to set up and brew. My problem with the kit is the sweetener they provided as I believe it adds a weird flavor, buts thats just my preference. Probably not worth the $76 but I love the equipment provided.
Instructions called for Bentonite although kit did not include. Temperature strips did not measure temp- stayed at 80 degrees for hours. Two packets of different yeast included with no instruction on which one to use. Grrrrrr! Frustrating first attempt.
This is a great kit! This is a great kit! This is a great kit! This is a great kit!
I was shipped an old instruction sheet and new set of ingredients, which means that the instructions directed me to to use an ingredient that I was not sent: Bentonite. I see now be reading the comments on the website that the Bentonite is no longer necessary, but fat lot of good that did me when I was elbow deep in the cider making process. Please stop shipping an incorrect sheet with the kits. Additionally, I too was provided (2) packets of yeast with no explanation as to why, or which specifically to use. Further, its unclear to a new fermenter what ingredients are which, so a more detailed picture, or some consistency in what they are called, would go a long way to fool proofing this kit.
