Its very easy to make cider, This starter kit has all you need apart from water

It takes approx 7-10 days to ferment the cider

Once fermented you need to store the cider to condition which will takes approx 3-4 weeks

You ferment the beer at room temperature anything from 16-21oC will be fine. Best not in a airing cupboard as this is far too hot

Then once bottled or barrel store at room temperature for 7-10 days to condition the cider, then more to a colder place to help clear the cider

Once the cider is made it will keep for 6 months - 1 year as long as the cider has conditioned in the bottle or barrel.

Making cider from a kit, is pretty much the same as making a beer kit, hence the basic beer instructions below
