Almost Off Grid Cider Making Kit. This Cider Kit contains all the equipment you need to make your first batch of cider from apple juice pressed from apples (not included).
Cider Kit Contents
- 1 x 1 Gallon (5 Litre) PET plastic Demijohn - makes approximately 4.5 litres of cider, or the equivalent of 6 bottles (bottles not included)
- 1 x Cap for Demijohn with bored hole, fitted with a PVC grommet to keep an airlock in place
- 1 x Bubbler Airlock with Dust Cap
- 1 x 100g tub of VWP Cleaner/Steriliser
- 1 x tub of 50 Campden Tablets for treating your apple juice
- 1 x 10g sachet of Almost Off Grid M02 Cider Yeast
- 6 reusable plastic corks which can be pressed into the neck of standard sized bottles by hand - no corker needed (suitable for still cider only)
- 1 x Complete Syphon including a sediment trap, rigid syphon tube, PVC tubing and tap to control the cider flow when bottling
- A basic guide to making cider from garden apples.
Please note: to make cider you will also need apple juice, bottles and (optional) sugar for carbonating your cider when you've bottled it. And if you want to know the alcohol content of your cider, you will need a hydrometer which is not included in this kit.
If you are considering making cider from apples for the first time and want an idea of what it involves, check out our blog post: A Beginner's Guide to Making Cider from Apples.
Bought the beginners cider pack & 2 extra plastic demijohns & 2 more different packets of yeast to go with the one in the pack.
There is an instruction sheet which is invaluable, but also see the blog on the website.
I’m making 3 batches of Perry & although it’s overkill, using a different packet of yeast per demijohn to see what’s best for future.
The delivery arrived quickly & I after following the prep instructions carefully, I have 3 bubbling demijohns full of Japanese pear juice (which had been frozen since last Sept).
There are other companies out there doing similar products, but I thought Almost off the grid offered best value for money.
No problems with order or delivery. Good back up guidance on line. Cider coming away nicely!
Ordered these well in advance as I needed them for early December, within an hour of ordering they were ready for collection. Fantastic service as usual. Thank you Bav and Andy. 10/10.
This kit has all you need plus the apples, we are just waiting and watching now...
