How do I make wine with one of your kits?

It's really very easy!

  1. First, make sure that all of your equipment from your wine making kit is clean and sanitized.
  2. Then, you carefully pour the juice into your primary fermenter, and top it off to 6 gallons with water.
  3. Next, pour your wine yeast in, and stir the mixture with a sanitized spoon. Place the cover securely onto the bucket and fit a sanitized airlock into the hole.
  4. Then place your fermenter in a room temperature (68-85 °F) environment. You should begin to see bubbles coming up through the airlock within 24-48 hours.
  5. Once the primary fermentation is complete (1 bubble a minute out of the airlock), it's time to transfer the wine to a carboy or barrel. This is a good time to test the acidity, pH and SO2 levels and make any necessary adjustments. The wine sits in the carboy or barrel until it ferments to complete dryness.
