The right choice for balanced Ciders.

Produces an excellent cider

Added 2kg sugar for my alcho rele's and its an instant success. Luckily one of them plays guitar better when appropriately lubricated. :)

Black ( Honey ) Mead

My Brew is in the brewing process so hard to give a review at this date ! I’m hoping the Safcider yeast works well with hops added to yeast in the fruity Mead ?
