How it Works
Step 1 - Choose Your Cooler
Either from our Cooler List online or in store, choose the batch that you would like to make with us, either off-dry or sweet. One cooler batch is 23L.
Step 2 - Pitch the Yeast
Come into store to pay for your cooler and pitch the yeast. Although only taking a few seconds, this is the most important step in making your cooler with us and is a legal requirement.
Step 3 - Let Us Do The Work
Your cooler will be ready in 5 weeks. During this time, you can sit back and relax while we do the rest.
Our team will be caring for your cooler while it ferments, clears and settles before moving it into an aging room until you are ready to come in to bottle. Just before bottling, we will filter and carbonate your cooler with our state-of-the-art filter & carbonating system.
Step 4 - Call to Make an Appointment to Bottle
When you are ready, and the "due date" for you cooler is coming up or already past, simply call us to make an appointment to bottle. We need minimum two days notice for coolers!
The number of bottles you will require are noted below this process timeline. If you would like to save any bottles that you have already, simply rinse them out after drinking and bring them with you on the bottling day. If you do not have any bottles at home, you are welcome to buy bottles from us on the day. If you intend to use cans we will provide these on the day.
Step 5 - Bottle or Can Your Cooler!
On your appointment day, come in to bottle your cooler! If it is your first time, or if you need a refresher, our friendly team will lead you through the entire process.
It is best practice to sanitize your bottles prior to bottling your cooler. If you do not have a method of doing this at home, we have manual hand pump sanitizers that are free to use (takes around 10 minutes), or a sanitizing machine that automatically sanitizes your bottles in 2 minutes (the cost for which is around $2.00 per batch).
Bottling itself is a very easy process, whether you bottle into plastic bottles, glass bottles or cans. The whole process takes approximately 45 mins per batch!
Step 6 - Store Your Cooler
After bottling, take your cooler straight home to store until you are ready to enjoy it!
The coolers made at BA Brewmaster and BA Winexpert have less preservatives than commercial coolers, which has many advantages for the consumer, but means that your cider needs to be stored in a cool dark place. It is best to keep them fridge cold, however cool garages and basements will be okay so long as they do not reach above 20°C (68°F).
The coolers can be enjoyed straight away and do not require aging!
Step 7 - Enjoy!
The easiest step of all - enjoy!!!
We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. This means that if you try your cooler and it simply does not suit your taste, all you need to do is let us know and return your full bottles or cans of cooler. We will add a credit to your account and you can make another batch to find something that suits your taste. If still, you are unhappy, we will refund you entirely. This is how sure we are that you will enjoy our coolers.
