  1. Thank you for all the helpful information. I think I'll try using the apple juice in the next batch and see how that works since that's a simple change. Some of the other ideas sound a bit complicated and potentially expensive and I'd just rather go out and buy a six pack of Angry Orchard at that point!
  2. I am a fan of Angry Orchard cider and understood the Mr. Beer Cider Kit wouldn't taste as sweet. That being said, does anyone have any suggestions to sweeten it up a bit? I know you can brew using apple juice and will try that but am just wondering if anyone else any any other thoughts. Thanks.
  3. I moved it to a slightly warmer area of the house and I'll just wait longer before opening up the next one. Thanks again for the info.
  4. Thanks RickBeer for the tip. This time of year it's hard to have a 70 degree plus room though. During the winter the temp in our house is usually in the 60's.
  5. I am new to brewing and received a Hard Cider kit for Christmas. After brewing in the fermenter, I bottled it in the provided one liter bottles with 2.5 tsp of table sugar. After sitting for two weeks, I decided to refrigerate and try a bottle. Although it tastes good (although a bit weak which is probably why the refill kits come with an extra bottle of concentrate), it really isn't carbonated. There was a slight fizz when I first opened the bottle but there are no bubbles when I poured it. I know the instructions say it should sit in the bottles for 2-3 weeks so maybe I should have waited longer. Does anyone that has used the cider kit have any suggestions or advice? Thank you.
