A  home brew pear cider typically come with everything you need to get started, including:

  • Pear juice concentrate: This concentrated pear juice provides the base for your cider and ensures a consistent flavour and sweetness.
  • Yeast: Cider yeast is chosen explicitly for fermenting pear juice and will help convert the sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
  • Nutrients: Cider nutrients provide essential vitamins and minerals for the yeast to thrive during fermentation.
  • Finings: These help to clarify your cider by removing sediment and leaving you with a clear and crisp final product.
  • Instructions: Most kits have detailed step-by-step instructions to guide you through the brewing process.

When choosing a pear cider brewing kit, consider your desired sweetness, dryness, oakiness, and the amount of cider you want to make. Once you have your home brew  kit the brewing process is relatively easy; follow these basic steps:

  1. Sanitise all your equipment: This is crucial to prevent contamination and ensure a clean final product.
  2. Mix the pear juice concentrate with water. Follow the instructions on the kit to achieve the desired sweetness and volume.
  3. Add the yeast and nutrients: Pitch the yeast and sprinkle in the nutrients according to the kit instructions.
  4. Seal the fermenter and attach the airlock: The airlock allows the CO2 produced during fermentation to escape while preventing oxygen from entering.
  5. Ferment the cider: Store the fermenter in a cool, dark place for 7-10 days or until fermentation is complete.
  6. Rack the cider (optional): This involves transferring the cider to a secondary container to remove sediment.
  7. Bottle or keg the cider: Add priming sugar to each bottle or keg to create natural carbonation.
  8. Condition the cider: Store the bottles or keg in a cool place for two to three weeks to allow the cider to carbonate and mature.

 With patience and a little effort you can enjoy your home brew pear cider in a few weeks.
