Suresan - A no-rinse sanitiser to ensure that the equipment being used is clean and sterile. You do not need to rinse this sanitiser out with water.
30 litre bucket - large enough for a full 5 gallons with plenty of head space in case the contents froth during the ferment.
LCD Thermometer - A stick on thermometer to show you the current temperature of the contents inside the bucket.
Plastic paddle - allows the mixing of the contents easily and quickly.
Airlock - A bubbler airlock to allow the fermenting gasses to be released but stop air getting in the bucket.
Syphon tube - A food grade plastic tube that allows you to transfer the liquid from the bucket to another container.
Rigid tube with sediment cup - Allows the tube to rest on the bottom of the bucket and help reduce sediment from being carried over.
Bucket clip - keeps the syphon tube held in position, freeing up a hand.
Flow control clip - Allows you to start and stop the flow of liquid, great when filling bottles.
Is there anything else needed?
The equipment required to ferment your cider comes as standard. You will also need to select a cider kit and something to store your finished product in such as bottles or a keg.
Can you re-use the equipment.
Yes. The equipment is designed to ast a very long time and be used over many years. You will need to replace the sanitiser when the contents have been used, but the equipment should last years if looked after carefully.
