All you have to do is add yeast and water, the Vintner's Best® Fruit Wine Bases includes the rest in many great fruit varieties.

For credibility reference, I have been all grain brewing for approaching 10 years. I’ve used Vintner's Harvest purees before with great success – very high-quality product. So, when I was recommended this product in substitute of the strawberry puree for a Milkshake IPA, I didn’t think anything of it. I truly wish I had never used, added this product. It took a very nice beer and may it a full loss / truly undrinkable / never going to get better drain pour. The syrup on its own taste bad, which I unfortunately discovered AFTER adding when I tried the empty bottle drippings. Flavors are VERY mundisal / medicine / cough taste – just horrible and no other way to describe it. I am very disappointed and we never use this product.
