What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
I bought this kit to enable me to have a go at home wine making for the first time. Delivery was prompt and all of the equipment supplied appears to be of good quality. My reason for a 3 star rating is that actually using this kit to make wine is not as straightforward or practical as it should be. The bucket supplied does not have a hole in it to enable an airlock to be fitted. Therefore at each stage of the winemaking process (using the kit I purchased) I had to syphon the wine from the glass demi-john into the bucket, clean the demi-john and then syphon the wine back into it so I could attach an airlock.
The kit would be great if you could fit an airlock to the bucket.
Worked OK, did what it said it was going to.I mixed the concentrate,sugar and yeast in the plastic bucket, then transferred to the demijohn straight away,then fitted the air lock. It seems to be working well
