Bursting with pear flavor from the very first sip and deliciously easy to drink, Pear cider is a perfect companion for any day or evening event. Festive and light, the notes of ripe pear are complemented by a soft body and crisp finish.
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™ Pear 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

I purchased this kit to make some seasonal cider for a friend and it came out pretty good. I might try this again using the apple or the berry just to see.
Cider House Select™ Pear Cider Kit
Cider is new to me this year, and this kit makes it really easy. I only use half of the sweetener, because I don't like it very sweet. May still be a little too sweet for me still, but I haven't had the courage to not add it at all. I've made it twice now, and have been pleased.
This was my first attempt at a cider. While I’m sure the out of the box recipe would be great, I decided to up the ABV by adding 1 1/2 pounds of wildflower honey. This raised the final ABV up to 8% with no alcohol burn. The final product was great. However, I recommend letting it age for about a month. The flavors really come together with time. I made this for my wife who wanted something on tap that wasn’t beer. She likes sweetness and she really enjoyed this. It reminded her of a moscato wine. The directions are simple to follow and are perfect for the beginner. I will make this again, trying different types of honey to see how that affects the final product. Cheers!
I am an old man that has been making hard cider in New England for over 50 years. Cider style, like a lot of things in NE, is a personal choice. However, if you like a real NE cider, not a store bought and packaged product, this is for you. I tried an apple and a pear and did a tasting verses my traditional, fresh pressed cider. I must admit my cider is a little better (of course I had to say that) but I will be using this product from now on. No more picking, washing, pressing, filtering, just mix, add my favorite yeast and 4 weeks later, you will be writing positive reviews!
