Cider Instructions Each kit makes 40 pints of refreshing fruit cider and includes:
We recommend Young’s Cleaner Steriliser.
Add 1kg of dextrose brewing sugar provided then an additional 3L of boiling water, stir vigorously until totally dissolved.
Add the contents of the Cider Yeast, Nutrient and Sweetener sachet and stir. (Do not add the flavouring at this point)
Half fill the airlock ‘U’ with water to protect during fermentation.
If temperature falls below 18°C (64 F) there is a possibility that fermentation may stick, in the colder months it may be advisable to use a heat pad or Brew belt.
If fermenting above 25°C (77°F), the quality of the Cider maybe significantly reduced.
Check the specific gravity (S.G.) using a hydrometer. If fermentation has finished, the S.G. should be within two points of the table below.
If not then leave to continue fermenting for a few more days and check again.
IMPORTANT WARNING: The S.G. must be stable for two consecutive days before bottling.
Never bottle until fermentation is complete.
Rejecting any glass bottles that have chips, cracks or imperfections.
PET bottles may also be used.
Once completely dissolved add this priming sugar solution to your Cider and stir well to ensure the solution mixes completely into the cider.
You are now ready to syphon into bottles.
We suggest leaving 5cm (2 inches) of headspace, this method will guarantee an even spread in each bottle and will carbonate your Cider giving perfect results.
Seal the bottles and store in a warm place between 18 – 25°C (64 – 77°F) for a minimum of 7 days before moving to a cool dark place.
When decanting be careful not to disturb the sediment if bottled.
Ciders will condition and improve if left for a longer period. Optimum time 6/8 weeks for best results. Cider Variety Specific Gravity(S.G.)
Strawberry & Lime 1.001
Peach & Passion Fruit 1.006
Raspberry & Mango 1.006
