Hard cider fermentation vessels must be made of food grade materials. Plastic buckets and pails, designed for primary fermentation of beer and wine, work best for initial fermentation of hard cider. Glass and plastic (Better Bottles) carboys are the traditional choice for secondary fermentation of hard cider.

Homemade cider is best served warm with wine mulling spices
