2 GALLON INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS RECIPE

 
Step 1. Sanitize As Directed, Including Your Blender!

Recipe requires a blender. Thoroughly clean and sanitize all equipment (including blender) by following the steps outlined in the instructions that came with your kit (you can find these instructions by clicking the "Help Desk" link at the top of the page).

 
Step 2. Making This Hard Cider

This recipe contains everything you need for fermentation. Just follow the instructions below. Since your hard cider is mostly water, the better the water the better your cider. This step should take about 30 minutes.

  • 2.1. Remove the black lid from your cider mix and stand both cans in a tub of hot tap water. This will help them pour more easily.
  • 2.2. Puree your fruit in sanitized blender.
  • 2.3. Fill your fermenter with a gallon of cold water. For best results, use bottled spring water or charcoal-filtered tap water.
  • 2.4. Place 4 cups of water into a clean 3-quart pot and bring to a boil.
  • 2.5. Remove from heat. Then slowly stir in 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar and your can of hard cider mix until fully dissolved.  This mixture is called the must.
  • 2.6. Pour the “must” into the fermenter. Bring the volume of the fermenter up to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more water, then add your pureed fruit. Mix thoroughly.  Read the thermometer and wait until the temperature of the must is between 64°- 82° F before adding the yeast.
  • 2.7. Add the yeast. Then attach your lid.
  • 2.8. Place the fermenter out of direct sunlight and maintain a temperature between 64°- 82° F for approximately 7 days.
 
And Now You Wait

After 7 days the cider in your fermenter should have stopped fermenting and begun to clear. It’s now time to bottle! If you’re not sure, draw a small amount from the tap; if it tastes like flat hard cider, it’s ready to bottle. If it tastes sweet, give it a few more days.

 
Step 3. Bottle as Directed

Follow the steps outlined in the hard cider instructions that came with your kit (you can find these instructions by clicking the "Help Desk" link at the top of the page).
