Makes 2 gallons of wicked-good beer in just 14 days!


More and more Americans realized that Big Beer all tastes the same so they started the Craft Beer Revolution. Now you can have beer that has flavor by brewing it yourself with your own Craft Beer Kit Plus.

This kit includes one of our most popular Craft Series Plus recipes. This is an all malt beer, coming in at around 4.7% ABV, smooth going down and lightly hopped. You’ll enjoy knocking this back. Beer is not for sitting and sipping. That’s tea. (different Revolution.)

Speaking of Revolution, that best describes the world’s first (patent pending) small batch conical fermenter which is included with this kit. It allows you to brew batch after batch and always with great results. It’s designed that way.

The other Plus (besides the extra malt) is a full set of logoed PET bottles to capture and show off your prize creation. Caps are included and reusable for a fully professional presentation of your brew.

Once your friends see your bottled brew, they’re going to want some. Guard this beer! Store it in a dark, cool place away from greedy eyes. Send them to us and they can make their own. If they beg, maybe give them a kit as the gift that keeps on giving.

Brewing Note

Sanitize everything that comes in contact with your beer.






1. Sanitize Your Equipment

This is perhaps the most important step in the brewing process. It kills any bacteria, wild yeast and mold that can cause off-flavors. It’s important to sanitize everything that comes in contact with your cider. This step should take about 15 minutes.

  • 1. In a container, dissolve half (1 tbsp) of the One Step No-Rinse Cleanser into a gallon of warm water. Shake until the cleanser has completely dissolved. Save the other half of the cleanser for bottling.
  • 2.Pour solution into the fermenter, screw on the lid and place your venting plug into its hole. Cover venting plug and swirl the solution around making sure it contacts the entire inside surface including the lid.
  • 3.Open and close the tap several times to sanitize the inner surface.
  • 4.Place your mixing spoon(s), measuring cup and can opener* inside the fermenter. Careful not to scratch the inside surface. Allow it to soak a minimum of 10 minutes.
  • 5.Drain fermenter. Remove your utensils and place them on a clean paper towel. No rinsing is required. You can alternatively sanitize a plate or bowl to use as a utensil rest.
*If needed. Can opener must be sanitized before using.
2. Making Your Hard Cider

Our cider mix contain 100% pure apple juice and is ready for fermentation. Just add water and the included yeast. Since hard cider is mostly water, the better the water the better your cider. This step should take about 30 minutes.

  • 1.Fill your fermenter with a gallon of cold water. For best results, use bottled spring water or charcoal-filtered tap water.
  • 2.Remove yeast packet from under the lid of cider mix (if necessary).
  • 3.Place 4 cups of water into a clean 3-quart pot and bring to a boil.
  • 4.Remove from heat. Then slowly stir in the hard cider mix and 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar until it fully dissolves. This mixture is called the must.
  • 5.Pour this must into the fermenter. Bring the volume of the fermenter up to the 8.5-quart mark by adding more water. Mix thoroughly. Read the thermometer and wait until the temperature of the wort is between 64°- 86° F before adding the yeast.
  • 6.Add the yeast. Then attach your lid. (If using an airlock attach it now).
  • 7.Place the fermenter out of direct sunlight and maintain a temperature between 64°- 86° F for approximately 7 days.
And Now You Wait

After 7 days the beer in your fermenter should have stopped fermenting and begun to clear. It's now time to bottle! If you're not sure, draw a small amount from the tap; if it tastes dry and tart like still cider, it’s ready to bottle. If it tastes sweet, give it a few more days.

3. Bottling/Carbonating Your Hard Cider

Some people prefer still cider (uncarbonated), for this you will need to skip step 4 and step 7. For everyone else, we need to add carbonation. It’s normal for this natural carbonating process to create a small amount of yeast sediment at the bottom of each bottle. This step should take about 45 minutes.

  • 1.Dissolve the remaining One Step into a gallon of warm water. 
  • 2.Fill each bottle half full with solution, place caps on (just a few turns) and shake a few times.Allow them to sit for a minimum of 10 minutes.
  • 3.Remove caps and empty bottles. No rinsing is required. Skip step 4 to make uncarbonated "still cider."
