Hard Apple Cider


Recommended Posts

G'day Raiders,

Have bought myself a Keg Master series 4 for xmas and have had a multitude of requests of cider on tap (once the 50L of home brew is gone on xmas day)

Wondering if anyone has a tried and tested recipe and method for hard apple or pear or mixed cider? This will still leave 2 kegs for beer so don't worry. :beersmile:

Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Cider is pretty straight forward, especially if you've been brewing beer.

Make sure you use good juice, no pasteurisation or preservatives. Not the supermarket crap. I go to the farmers markets and buy bottles. Let them know that you want it for cider and check that there's no preservatives.

Add champagne yeast. There'll be a volume suggestion on the pack.

In the past I've used 40% cherry or pomegranate juice, with pretty good results. Again, preservative free. Wholefoods and the like can be a good source.
