Product Details

The Hard Cider Essential Starter Kit is an economical way to start making hard cider at home.

This kit provides all of the basic fermentation and testing equipment required to make your first hard cider. Use the siphonless fermenting bucket for easy fermentation and bottling without any need to transfer your cider.

Making hard cider at home is as easy as 4 simple steps:

  1. Mix your juice and yeast
  2. Ferment for 10-14 days
  3. Bottle and carbonate
  4. Crack open a chilled hard cider and savor the moment

In addition to this equipment kit you’ll need bottles and a cider recipe kit. Choose one of our hard cider recipe kits. The kits include all the ingredients you need to make 6 gallons of cider (about 64 12 oz. Beer Bottles).

Or if you’re using your own apple cider, simply add sugar, cider yeast to ferment your juice, pectic enzyme to clarify your cider, yeast nutrient to support your cider yeast, apple extract to enhance flavor, and priming sugar to carbonate your cider.

First Time Cider Brewer

I purchased the Hard Cider kit and the shipping was very fast and the product meets my expectations. My first batch is fermenting right now, looking forward to tasting the results soon!

Great for beginners

This was my first time brewing cider, so I wanted to keep it as easy as possible! I pressed my own apples for juice, so I didn't get a recipe kit. I also bought a big jug of starsan for easy sanitizing, but the cider kit comes with a couple packets of sanitizer to get started. The kit has just about all the equipment you'll need, so you don't have to go overboard researching before trying your first batch. It cleans easily, and I like the ease of a plastic fermenting vessel compared to big glass carboys. I'd recommend it to anyone dipping their toes into homebrew cider for sure.

Good flavor after a few weeks

This was extremely simple to brew, and fermented fully quicker than expected, however, it had an unpleasant smell for the first week or so (kind of like a perm smell). The odor went away after being force carbonated for about a week and it is very good now. I'm not sure why it developed the smell.

Perfect, just needed a bit more instruction

I brewed hard cider and this is the go to for a beginner, but being a beginner I did feel like I was lacking instructions. I looked for a video to help, but they didn't have one one this item (please make a video). In the end I did a lot of video watchinf and reading, luckily it's hard to mess up. Love the cider and already have another batch going.
