Can I use my own fruit to make cider?

The Mad Millie cider kit contains a natural fruit concentrate which has been cold filled to retain all flavours and aromas.

While it is possible to use your own pressed fruit with the equipment in the cider starter kit, the recipe in this kit is tailored to the provided fruit concentrate.

Using your own fruit will give you different flavour results, and requires different fermenting times. There is also a risk of contamination when using your own fresh fruit, so we would recommend you pasteurise your juice before fermentation.
