Orchard Cider Kit

Posted on Aug 26 2010 - 10:25pm by Richard Sharp

Have you ever dreamed of brewing your own cider at home but realised you did not have the foggiest idea of where to start? Well the orchard cider kit will help you brew up 8 bottles of tasty cider in just 14 days with a fairly respectful 3.7% strength.

The kit comes with a gargantuan 2 gallon tank that you ferment your cider in, 8 reusable bottles and even two pint glasses to serve your fresh brew in. There is no need to bring your own apples either as the kit is supplied with a special mixture that will produce a tasty cider with bubbles and all.

The hardest part of the whole process is that you have to be patient whilst the cider ferments – remember it only takes 14 days and watching the whole transformation is fun in its self (the container is clear so you can see it bubbling and changing).

Once the whole process has finished you can bottle up the amber nectar and slap on one of the supplied stickers on the side of the bottle. The only thing the kit doesn’t supply is sunshine – but its mighty tasty home brew cider all the same.


The orchard cider kit is available for around £65 from I want one of those from September onwards.
