Description

Made from traditional UK Cider Apples grown in the unique terroir of the finest apple-growing region in the world. Harvested from the adjoining British counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire, apples grown in this region benefit from high quality soils, nearly year-round rainfall, and a mild maritime climate. Having been home to apple orchards for thousands of years, the climate of this area allows the apples to slowly mature, which produces fruit with excellent complexity and flavor balance.

Apple cider concentrate is produced by removing water from freshly pressed apple juice through evaporation while under vacuum. This process concentrates the natural sugars in the juice, making the resulting product easier to store for longer periods and less cumbersome when transporting.

Use:
We recommend diluting with 6 parts water to 1 part concentrate to reconstitute the original apple juice. This will leave you with a solution that is approximately 1.040 SG with an estimated alcohol content of 5.2% ABV after fermentation. The solution can be used as a flavor ingredient alongside fresh apple juice to impart high levels of tannin that will give your hard cider a wonderful mouthfeel, complex flavor, and great color and body.

0.5L good for 1 gallon.
3L good for 6 gallons.

BEST ANSWER: I do not. Searched but couldn’t find anymore information than that provided in the product description. I can say that the cider I made using this came out excellent.

The best concentrate for cider
There is no substitute for real cider apples and this concentrate makes a cider with perfect balance and a lot of body. I added 1 gallon of locally pressed juice to add aroma lost during the evaporation process. Adding more fresh juice would be even better. I diluted to just over 5 gallons so the abv was a more traditional 7.2%
Much better than adding tannin and acid blend to dessert apple juice.

Son loves it!
My son has to eat gluten-free and has come to enjoy ciders. Last time at my house, he polished-off my stash! He is not a fan of the sweet ciders and this definitely is not that way. It makes good solid stuff. Just make sure you use a yeast made for cider.

Not Sure Yet
This is just an experiment. I'm going to try using this in a 4-5 gallon batch of hard cider from store bought apple juice (probably Kirkland) to see how well it adds flavor and complexity. No dilution or sugar is planned.
