Craft Hard Peach & Passionfruit Cider Recipe Kit - Mangrove Jack’s
The Craft Peach and Passionfruit Hard Cider is light and fizzy combining both sweet and tart flavors. The sweet peach lifts the tangy passion fruit, making a very refreshing summer cider.
Each of Mangrove Jack’s cider varieties has been formulated with only the freshest and best quality fruit which is then pressed and concentrated using state of the art evaporators, and then cold filled into a pouch. All this effort we go to ensures that the natural flavor of the fruit is preserved, giving you cider which is fresh, crisp and especially good on a hot summer's day.
Note: 2 lbs of Dextrose is required for proper fermentation. Other sugars, like brown sugar, can be used.

This is the 2nd batch of Mangrove Jack's hard peach cider I've made and it seemed easier than the first. Didn't add a clarifier at the end so I'm waiting to see how the finished product differs if any from the first batch. The leftovers I sampled at bottling left me wanting more.
I have about a decade of brewing experience but this was only my second cider kit (for the wife who doesn’t care for the taste of hops). Both kits have suffered from intense rhino farts over the first week of fermentation. The instructions call for bottling after a week of fermentation but that would likely trap the sulfur in the beer. I bulk conditioned for an additional three weeks and then used a diffusion stone for 20 minutes to blow the remaining funk out of the solution. I also added potassium sorbate so that I could backsweeten with real sugar (I refuse to use artificial sweetener AND peach “essence”) and force carbonate in a keg. The final result is tart and flavorful. I’m not a cider lover but my wife approves. I only wish I had started it sooner... this is definitely a summer sipper.
This cider is really easy to make. It makes a very crisp and refreshing cider. I thought there would be weird off-flavors. But, it's very clean. I'd buy this again. (I wish it was a tad more ABV :))
Easy to use kit with clear instructions. And the cider tasted great.
Totally satisfied with the kit....easy to brew and drinkable within 10 days-ish. Good refreshing cider for the warmer months.
