it does not say that in the description that it is for beer only, I had already bought 3 packs from this site! I don't make beer, Just wine, so this is useless to me. If it would have said "For Beer Only" I would not have bought this !BEST ANSWER: This item is a mixture of sugar and yeast energizer - it can be used to make a starter to increase the amount of and health of the a yeast source. It can be used for wine or beer, and can even be used to restart high gravity ferments that slow down or start to get stuck - like wine. Not sure the disconnect but we highly recommend contacting customer service about how to use products if unsure. WE would be happy to help you get good use out of a purchase or find a way to help ensure satisfaction with our products or service. Cheers! James J.How do you use this Red Star Yeast Starter? For WineBEST ANSWER: You would not want to use this kit for wine. It is intended for beer. You would simply use additional packs of yeast for higher gravity wines.
