I loved this kit! It was super simple, easy to follow, and made a gorgeously clear chardonnay. It was a hit!
This was my third small batch of wine and my first white wine. I am very pleased at how this Chardonnay turned out. It cleared up nicely and it's very crisp and clean.
I’m still waiting for this wine to mature, but so far it has aroma that fits a dry hop with Galaxy Hops. Attempting to bitter the wine with hops I completely forgot what brings out the bitterness in hops, boiling. But once I realized what I did / didn’t do, I was intrigued by the flavor and aroma. Going to let this wine sit for 2 more months before uncorking one of them to see how it matures.

It’s concentrate. I think 6 gallons is pushing the limits of the concentrate but I would also use a different Larkin yeast, one designed to bring out the floral notes and orchard fruits. Using fresh juice always produces better white wine but this Rirsling is very clear and little oxidation compared to their Chardonnay. Just remember to use some yeast nutrient to get the yeast to do it’s proper job and I try to avoid the additives for clarification using cold stabilization instead. It produces a decent wine but needs a bit of time in bottle to settle down for maximum enjoyment.
