My partner took a notion about 18 months ago that he would like to try his hand at brewing his own wine! After much research we were a little apprehensive as brewing from fresh fruit seemed complicated until we came across wine kits! Since trying a couple of kits, a white Chardonnay, a Chablis and a red Merlot we were becoming a little disheartened as they didn't taste as good as we had hoped!

This kit was recommended to my partner from an experienced brewer on an online forum and since then he has brewed this kit many times now ... its hassle free brewing and what a bonus that it only takes 7 days until bottling up ... although we have found leaving it an extra day or two enhances the flavour more! After a few times of using this kit you will find that you will get used to how it brews, summer will be different to winter obviously due to temperature changes affecting how the yeast reacts etc., but you will be able to tweak it a little, a wee bit less or a wee bit more sugar.. etc! ;) We really do enjoy brewing this kit ... the wine is very smooth, and personally I always think it has a very subtle hint of strawberry! A couple of friends have stated it is much much nicer than bottles of Rose they have purchased previously costing £6-£10. Winter or summer its always enjoyable! This wine is also a hit with family and friends ... so much so that we often get phone calls asking when our next batch is due ... a bit of a headache when trying to get bottles back ..haha!! I also get the sneaky feeling that a friend of ours only invites us to dinner when she knows we have a just brewed a batch ... lol One word of warning ... it is sooo smooth and goes down a wee bit too easily that before long I have had one glass too many, much to my detriment the next morning!!

Arrived very quickly only a couple of days after ordering.
Was worried that it wasn't fermenting as my house makes the North Pole seem like the Caribbean. But silly me was being impatient and being a larger brew quantity it obviously takes a little bit longer to kick in, and boy did it not! It was like Mount Etna and I ended up having to replace the airlock after it tried to escape through it.
It has been 8 days now and has slowed right down, you can do this in a hurry but I am following the instructions for a better quality wine so will be taking a hydrometer reading and depending on the results will have 30 bottles of Rose in a few days.

Very pleased with this kit, simple, clear instructions and a very cheap option for 30 bottles.

Just a word of advice you need aprox 3 and a half kg of sugar overall, but that can be obtained quite cheaply if you shop around.

I am exceedingly pleased with this kit and will buy this again. The instructions were easy to follow and it makes a good rosé wine. Strong and smooth. I was a bit sceptical about the "7-day" thing and was prepared for a sharp, sour taste, chemical tang or having to wait a lot longer but was delighted to be proved wrong. I am fortunate to have a place that is constantly at 19'C to leave a 30L bucket to ferment and I checked with a hydrometer on the 6th day and it was fine. It is at this point you de-gass (I have found that a good fast 20s egg-beating-whisking sort of stir every hour over an 8 hour day is fine at removing the CO2. For whites and rosés anyway. Add the finnings etc and leave to clear in a cooler environment for another 24 hours. After 24 hours what was syphoned off was crystal clear. I was blown away by how quaffable this proved to be! I made this to be drunk straight away, well, within a week or so therefore I cannot comment about storing this for any length of time wrt "ageing" or anything but who would want to? This works out to be all-in-all about a quid a litre. It is ready in 7 days. And it tastes great. I cannot recommend this kit enough

Ghastly. Avoid at all costs. Find a kit with 10 litres of quality juice and no added sugar required. It may cost a few quid more but at least you can drink it instead of using it to clean your drains!

This has been one of the best and easiest wine kits we have made. The wine came out after 2 weeks perfectly clear and a lovely strawberry colour. The taste is good but not quite as good as £5 wine from the supermarket but at this price who cares. One mistake we made was not to de-gas the wine sufficiently and this I think affected the taste slightly so please follow the instructions unlike us. I would certainly recommend this wine kit to all and we will be trying out the reds next.

Arrived very soon after I made the order which always surprises me as we live on an island on the very north west of Scotland. I also didn't have to pay any extra for postage because I live on an island which many companies do so that too is a bonus. I have stopped using these companies. Wine is so easy to make and all my family and friends love it.
