Making hard apple cider is fun and easy to do with the Mr Beer Kit. It only takes a little bit of time to make and is well worth the effort. Below are pictures from one of our first batches of hard apple cider. It took us about 1 hour to make. Instead of water we added apple juice and some extra spices, to give it an extra kick. Below each picture is an explanation of the steps involved. This recipe makes about two gallons of delicious hard apple cider.
