From the juiciest pears comes the best pear cider. This cider has a sweet mellow pear flavor that satisfies any thirst. This traditional style hard pear cider (perry) can be served still, or with carbonation to make a refreshingly spritzy drink. 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.
Each of Mangrove Jack’s cider varieties has been formulated with only the freshest and best quality fruit which is then pressed and concentrated using state of the art evaporators, and then cold filled into a pouch. All this effort we go to ensures that the natural flavor of the fruit is preserved, giving you cider which is fresh, crisp, and especially good on a hot summer's day.
If you don't like pears, just remember a cider a day also keeps the doctor away.
Note: 2 lbs of Dextrose is required for proper fermentation. Other sugars, like brown sugar, can be used.

Have had a couple of ciders brewed before this kit. Easy directions. Of note, the directions included refer to using the Mangrove Jack bottling caps, which are separate. I did not have those, but used dextrose as a priming sugar with bottling as per calculation for 2 volumes of COs. This resulted in a nicely carbonated cider/perry, which even with bottled to a 64 oz growler still held carbonation for 2 days after initial opening. I used half the sweetener as instructed for a semi-sweet cider. I was glad I did not use the whole packet as I have found my preference is more toward the semi-sweet if not dry side.
Overall, a decent mix with instructions that are easy to follow and provide a very drinkable beverage
Great result! Everyone loves the taste! Thanks again!
