    If they don't contain any preservatives (and most of them don't) then they are perfect for the job! :thumb:

    Wot Dutto said. Look for the turbo cider thread. It's dead read to make.

    Thanks for the help peeps. I will give it a go. Going to use super wine yeast.

    I always use ale yeast for my turbo ciders, I think it gives a more mellow taste.
    It's a pretty bland yeast I use - Young's general purpose ale yeast. So it doesn't impart any funky flavours, but still nicer than the wine yeast I used before.
    Just put another 2 down, but I am thinking of experimenting with a different beer yeast next time, perhaps a saison - just to see how it changes the profile.

    Hey thanks for the advice. I must try the ale yeast next. I have made to batches of ribena wine so far. I am new to brewing so the 1st batch i used champagne yeast, the 2nd batch i used the youngs super wine yeast. It has been in the hot press now for 2 weeks and 2 days and is still fermenting when i checked on it this morning.
