Our Craft Cider Options
Looking for that elusive dry apple cider? Sick of added sweeteners and colours? We’ve got you covered! Our premium TCB Apple Cider is made from 100% pure Organic BC apples pressed locally in Chilliwack. We can finish our premium ciders at a variety of sweetness levels, most people prefer their craft cider dry. No added sugar, we sweeten only with pure unfermented apple juice. Get the best BC has to offer!
TCB Premium Craft Cider
TCB Apple Cider – 1/2 Batch
TCB Apple Cider – Full Batch
Our premium craft ciders take about 3 weeks. Since we are starting with real juice, this cider will tend to be cloudy and will vary a little depending on the time of year and the apples that are in season at that time. We are happy to add a little natural pectic enzyme to add clarity if you so desire!
Kit Cider From Concentrate
We also carry kit ciders from a variety of companies – these ciders are a little quicker to ferment and will be sweeter than our premium cider. They will have more clarity than our craft cider.
These kits start out with concentrated juice. Dextrose (corn sugar) is added as much of the fermentable sugar is lost during the concentration process. Water is added to restore the original volume, then fermentation begins.
ABC Crafted Cider – Apple – 23L
ABC Crafted Cider – Pear – 23L
Black Rock Cider – Apple – 23L
Kit ciders are a little quicker and are generally ready in about 2 weeks.
Caring for your cider
Cider can be stored upright and should be kept in a dark, cool place. We have successfully kept cider for 6+ months refrigerated without issue.
Since ciders are carbonated, they must be bottled in plastic pet bottles or glass bottles with caps. Corked bottles are not suitable; the pressure will pop out the corks!
