I have been making cider house kits for several years with no troubles. One deviation I suggest is to add a can of frozen concentrate of apple juice, apple cherry, or mixed berry. I do this after fermentation is complete. Usually right before I keg 5 gallons of the 6 gallon batch. The other gallon. Goes on fresh fruit and drink it like a sangria.
These are a great way to make a good cider easily!
I gotta say as someone who have been home brewing beer for years, this kit was almost too easy! You basically make a simple syrup (corn sugar) cool that down then put the liquid into the fermenter. Pop the yeast in there and let it rip. I fermented it at 64F and the provided yeast produced a lot of sulfur.. commonly known as "rhino farts" I am happy my fermentation chamber is in the garage ;) I let it roll for 2 weeks and put the flavoring packet directly into the keg and transferred the cider. I burst carbonated it and it's drinking pretty nice. I will say that at 3 weeks total time, the sulfur smell is still in the nose. I'd buy this again for sure, but changing yeast strain the next time I made it.
Very impressed with the Mango-Peach cider. Even more importantly my Thanksgiving guests were impressed. Couldn't believe I made it. I do agree with another reviewer - I added 2oz each of Peach and Mango natural flavoring when I kegged it, in addition to the flavor pack it comes with. It made it perfect. Without the flavoring I think it would not have been half as good. Thanks for the idea!
The aroma of mango when you pop the top fills the room. Goes down really easy with a nice after taste!
