Ordered this kit after receiving a Coopers starter kit for Christmas from my fiance. Started the kit on 6/01/2015, FV sat in gardening bucket full of water with aquarium heater to control temperature. Didn't take any gravity readings - not sure why! Followed instructions to the T. 07/01/2015 - stank of hydrogen sulphide (rotten eggs), slightly worried i'd done something wrong but kept going with it. Still smelly but transferred to another bucket for bottling on 13/01/2015, primed with included sugar. Threw an engagement party on 31/01/2015 - this cider tasted awesome. All 40 bottles were gone within 3 hours, many people commented it was the best cider they'd ever had. 3 friends have just ordered their first home brew kit as a result! It didn't taste sugar'y like most flavoured ciders which are popular at the moment. There was a lovely raspberry bite at the start but a nice mango sweetness carrying the rest of the mouthful. I will do this again, many more times.
