My wife and I bought the starter kit and this Cab. The process was enjoyable, we looked forward to testing day. Follow all the steps and you can't go wrong. We had one question on timing and the support answered our question swiftly. After bottling we had about a glass and a half so we HAD to try it--it was a tad sweet. We put it in the cellar for 2 months and now it has a wonderful full body to it. We are making labels and giving some as Christmas presents.

Very easy to work with
I have made 2 batches of this wine and each time it has been an easy process. I now am awaiting the day I can uncork a bottle and taste my results. I plan on leaving it in the bottle to age 4 months.

Ready to bottle
The batch is in the clarification phase. I had about a half a glass that wouldn't fit into the the carboy, it was delicious.

Couldn't have been more happy with that first batch. My second batch is in the clarification stage and should be ready to bottle in a couple days.
1st batch turned out better than I expected! Fantastic flavors, I added California oak cubes along with the toasted oak chips that came in the kit during the first fermentation, and the results made for a very unique twist in its taste. It was a big hit with all my friends and family that enjoyed it as Christmas Presents.
Bottles are ready for corks.

Is it necessary to stir daily during the first few days of primary fermentation? None of the 50+ beer batches I've made contained such instructions.
A shopper on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, you should follow the instructions. The mixing during the first few days of fermentation gets the CO2 out of the wine, which is toxic to wine yeast. Cheers!
Does it contain ALL the additives i.e. yeast, clearing agent etc etc (about 4 packages ) or must they be ordered individually
V R on Jul 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Everything is included. I just got my kit today and it had everything.
Do you need to add yeast to this?
D U on Jul 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You need to add yeast but it does come in the box. I ordered some separately and realized I didn't need it when I opened the box of juice!
What is average ABV for this wine kit? What should I expect?
J S on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: you should have a 12%ABV your 1st reading of the juice should be 1.09.

Good Luck!!
How long can I store the juice before making my first batch, maintaing fermentation temps above 70 degrees will be a problem before March ?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer the storage question, but I can help you ferment. If you have a refrigerator or micro fridge big enough to hold your fermentation container, use a temperature controller ($50-$60) with a 100 watt light bulb. Another alternative is a space heater and a closet or bathroom.
Have a beer making kit and want to make wine, what do I need to buy besides the wine kit?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The wine is going to need a 6 gallon carboy and I also bought a degasser and cork tool and bottles. It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be though. Have fun.
In the instructions it says you can store up to 1 year. Are you able to store for longer periods of time like wine bought from a winery? If not, why only for one year. Thanks.
E L on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The wine will be at peak flavor 6 months after bottling. After about a year, the wine will not continue to get better and instead could get worse. Still drinkable, just not as good as as it was. Corks will store for about 2-3 years before they fail, so if storing for longer than 1 year, the only thing to consider is the free SO2 in the wine - add an extra 1.5 tsp to the batch if you store longer than 1 year.
How detrimental would it be to make this wine kit and NOT use any of the salt or clearing additives?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The first thing you will notice is that the wine will be cloudy, next it will have off-flavors. Also, you will discover that it will not be very long before you are opening bottles that have gone bad far far sooner than they ever should.
Everything included in the kit is there for a reason. My suggestion would be to do some research into the wine making process, learn what problem each additive is designed to solve, read about each one and discover for yourself any alternate processes to solve that problem another way if you don't like what is provided. Hope this helps. Good luck.
If made well, how much is each bottle worth?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can figure the approximate cost by dividing the kit cost by 30, so a kit like this costs about $2.35 a bottle. It is equivalent to a wine costing more than that, though. Figure it would be similar to wines in the $6-$9 range, something like that.
