Does anything sound cozier than sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying a nice hard cider? Soon, you’ll be able to make your own, thanks to this hard cider home-brewing system.

The Alchema “Home Cider System” will turn chopped fruit into hard cider in just one to two weeks.

Unlike other home-brewing systems, this one comes with an app that really takes all of the guesswork out of the process. While adding the ingredients (fruit, sugar, water, and yeast), the app measures how much you’re adding and tells you when you’ve added enough — making it virtually impossible to screw up the recipe.

If you’re feeling extra patient, you can also use wine grapes instead of apples, and you’ll have homemade wine after 16 weeks.

This handy-dandy tool does come at a price: It’s available for pre-order on Kickstarter for a cool $499, and you’ll still have to cover the cost of ingredients, of course.

But if you can swing it, it looks like it will make for a fun night with friends – or a cozy evening in!
