Only reason I got this kit was because it was going out of date and was being sold at half price. Â£8 for over 40 pints was a risk worth taking. The first decision you have to make when starting off is whether to make 24, 20 or 16 litres and the quantity of sugar you want to add. There's a chart that shows what the different combinations will get you in relation to alcohol content and sweetness per litre. I went for 20 litres and 800 grammes of sugar. This should give me a 5% alcohol and a sweetness of 25g/l. Dissolved the sugar in boiling water and mixed in the contents of the tin. Topped up to 20 litres and poured in the rehydrated yeast. This kit doesn't come with a flavour pack, just apple/pear concentrate and yeast. After 10 days the primary fermentation was complete and it was time to bottle. It was at this point that I decided to leave the instructions and to go my own way. It asks you to prime the bottles with sugar and then to ensure proper carbonation you can add 1-3 teaspoons of the yeast lees per bottle. I didn't fancy this so I racked it off and bottled with a teaspoon of sugar in each one. Left in a warm room for a week and then moved to the garage. Two weeks later and they've carbonated perfectly. The taste is very good and is closer to a Bulmers than a dry cider. The apple completely overpowers the pear to the point that you only get the slightest pear aftertaste, so if you like pear cider then this isn't the kit for you. I bought two of these kits so I'll give it a try at 16 litres and see what difference it makes. Hasn't aged yet but first impressions would make me recommend it.
