Turbo Cider Recipe

Turbo Cider Recipe from Brewers Barn

Turbo cider is a very easy drink to make and can be one of the cheapest. The following recipe will walk you through the simple steps involved.

All the equipment for making 1 gallon of Turbo Cider is included in our Complete Turbo Cider Making Kit.


4.5L Fruit Juice

150g Brewing Sugar

1 tsp Pectolase

1 tsp Tannin

1 sachet Cider Yeast


Sterilise all your equipment

Bring 500ml of juice to the boil and dissolve into it 150g sugar, then add to the demi-john.

Add 3L of juice to the demi-john, along with the Pectolase and the Tannin, gently shake the demi-john and add the Yeast. Half fill the airlock with water and attach to the demi-john

Fermentation should start to happen within a day or so. After about 4 days the foam will go down, when this happens, add the remaining juice and leave to ferment out (when bubbles stop passing through the airlock) around 1 to 2 weeks.

Once fermentation is complete, you can either syphon into a clean demi-john for a scrumpy cider or for a sparkling cider syphon into bottles with half a teaspoon of sugar, cap them and leave to carbonate for 2- 3 weeks.

The cider is ready to drink, but will improve if left longer.
