I already have a fermenter, can I use that to make my cider?

You absolutely can use your own fermenter, however, having too much free oxygen in the top of your fermenter means flavour compounds can undergo oxidation and produce off flavours.

You should, therefore, ensure that enough cider kits are used to fill the fermenter, leaving a headspace of approx. 7.5-10 cm if yours is larger than the one that Mad Millie provides.
