With a kit like this, making wine at home is easy, even if you've never done it before. Also designed for making six-gallon batches, the Deluxe Winemaking Kit has the same equipment as the Basic, but with several upgrades.
The best thing about this kit is the floor corker. It's far more sturdy and efficient than hand held corkers, and can easily be operated by one person. An then there's the gadgets: a wine thief and test jar make taking and reading hydrometer samples easier and more accurate; the sanitizable plastic paddle is ideal for mixing must, stirring in additives, or degassing wine prior to bottling; a carboy handle makes it easier to move a carboy; two fermometers stick to the fermenters for constant temperature readings; and an extra fermentation lock gives the flexibility to stagger batches.
The Deluxe Winemaking Kit is the way to go if you will be making more than a couple of batches of wine in a year; further experience will make you glad to have the gear in this kit.
