Hello my friends. Spainfag living in Australia reporting in. I just moved to AU to stay for a couple of years, maybe more. I realized that booze its fucking expensive here, and i wanted to do my own cider. I saw this photo @ /b/ and i want to know if its real or what. Looks pretty easy but sure its not. Can you give me any tips? Thanks :)

That is ridiculously, needlessly complex. I used this recipe and my cider turned out fan. Didn't sanitize shit.

Has anyone done this before? I just finished doing all of this stuff it says to do, and I hope to god that it works.

Also, this shit cost a lot more than it says it does
in the image. It came to a total of $32.00. The
only reason I still went through with it is because
I'm not 21 yet.

If you really want to do something like this, here's how you do it.

5 Gallons of pure, all-natural apple juice (no preservatives) (any style of apple)
Brewer's Yeast of choice (I recommend both englich cider yeast [http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/cider-mead-sake/cider-making/wl-english-cider.html] and Brettanomyces lambicus [http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/wyeast-brettanomyces-lambicus.html]) from northernbrewer.com
5 lbs of brown sugar
5 oz. Honey

2 Brew buckets
siphon hoses
bleach (for sanitizing)
3 gallon cookpot
10 2 liter soda bottles

Heat sugar and 2 gallons of juice together until the sugar is completely dissolved. Pour juice and sugared juice into a brewbucket and cool until 75 degrees.

Pitch the Cider yeas and seal the bucket, installing the carb-lock. Store in a cool dry place for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, siphon cider into the second brewbucket, pitch the Bret. Seal, install carb-lock and store in a cool dry place for 2 weeks.

Once fermentation has stopped (i.e. the carb-lock stops bubbling) siphon the cider off into a sterile brewbucket and gently stir in 5 ounces of honey. Once the honey is well blended, siphon the cider into sterile 2 liter bottles and seal storing in a cool dry place for a week or two, then chill and serve.

So basically I just made this.
I made the batch half the size of the on ine the pic. and didn't put the full amount of sugar in it, so the fermentation period is way shorter.
Hopefully I will have some decent tasting apple cider at new years eve. Roughly 10 liters.
Any advice for a first time brewer? :)
I can provide pics if you want it.
