I've recently purchased and set up a cider homebrew kit, but after 9 days I've had absolutely no sediment at all. Have I done something wrong? I've followed the instructions to the word.

  • I've never brewed anything that didn't have some sediment visible the first time I looked. Tell us what else you can see, we need more info.

    Have you seen any evidence of fermentation? Have you compared the gravity with the original reading?

If you have no sediment then likely your yeast is dead and you should probably get some new yeast and add it in.
