This was my very first success and the kit that renewed my faith in homebrewing. I'm not going to say it's the best thing I have ever tried but it was a huge improvement on my previous attempts. The kit is extremely easy to follow and other than using bottled water I follwed it to the letter. When it came to priming I made the huge mistake of using Coopers carbonation drops (little candy sweet looking things) as they don't really have a measure for pint bottles (375 & 750 only). This left me with a reasonable drink with not a lot of fizz, nothing to do with the kit though. As I said, this kit was done pretty much to the letter. I set my immersion heater for 18 degrees and left it to it. Once finished I racked into the secondary and then bottled with the carbonation drops. The end result was a very clear cider with not a lot of fizz but plenty of flavour thanks to the flavour sachet. The smell was a little sulphuric to begin with and while it did get better it did remain right till the last bottle. Positives: Very simple to brew Sachet made a massive difference to flavour impact Lovely and clear Negatives Although the flavour was nice and strong it was clearly fake Sulphuric odour throughout batch regardless of time, although it did lessen Typical kit cider aftertaste, nothing terrible though. I would definitely recommend this kit. The flavour is very tasty. Much like the Magnum Cider that I reviewed it is a little bit alchopoppy but very refreshing and will be very enjoyable in the sun. My Wife gave this 2 thumbs up and given how fussy she is that really says a lot for how nice this cider is. I would choose this one over the magnum kit but I am curious to give the magnum pear a go to see how it compares, most likely identical.
