    I didn't see much of a review for this anywhere when I bought it so I thought I'd give you guys a heads up. I got it in a sale from home brew online for about £13.

    Currently have this on tap in my Kegerator (first brew in a keg) and it is really quite nice, I'm actually quite surprised how good it is and how it tastes so good so quickly.

    I did however brew it slightly different to the instructions it calls for 1 kg dextrose. Instead of this I added 6 litres of apple juice and also 400 grams of LME from Holland and Barrett and I brewed it to 20 litres. I used Mangrove Jacks Cider yeast for the brew and fermented at 19c in my brew fridge, before cold crashing for two days before transferring to the keg.

    As I say I was sceptical at making a cider from a kit and i'm sure the extra juice helps along with the lme for a bit more body. I would definitely recommend it.
