6) Craft A Brew hard cider kits

If you’re looking for something that the two of you can enjoy together, look no further. Craft A Brew Hard Cider kits come with everything needed to brew not one, not two, but three batches of premium cider! Included in the kit: a glass gallon jug, tubing, a funnel, yeast, sanitizer, and a no-nonsense guide to making the best damn cider you’ve ever had. All you need to bring to the table is some patience, a pot to mix your ingredients in, juice or cider (your choice depending on your ideal brew) and some brew bottles. The guide is relatively easy to follow, but it is important to note that the brewing process does require a cooler environment – since we’re dealing with yeast here. But luckily we live in a day and age where we can check the forecast, plan ahead and of course, take advantage of that sweet, sweet air conditioning! If dad isn’t the cider type but you think he’d still enjoy being a brewmaster, no worries. Craft A Brew also has kits to make ales, IPAs, and stouts. Even gluten-free kits are available.
