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.

Exceptional value

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.
