Or if you’re using your own apple cider, simply add sugar, cider yeast to ferment your juice, pectic enzyme to clarify your cider, yeast nutrient to support your cider yeast, apple extract to enhance flavor, and priming sugar to carbonate your cider.

- Hard Cider Recipe Kit Instructions
Never brewed anything before, just consumed! Wanted to try cider because store bought is very overpriced. Also, many US mainstream brands are overly sweet in my opinion. Northern Brewer's kit is perfect for a first timer. Everything you need, except one thing! Instructions! Come on Northern Brewer! You can do better. Your video that accompanies your "How to Make Hard Cider" web page doesn't even address using your own kit! And, sure, there are lots of other sources of info, but they make a lot of assumptions about your experience and equipment. Couldn't you put a 2-3 page how-to in with the kit? Other than that, it's a great kit. Pleased with my purchase.
