1 month agoAll around great kit!Great basic kit that is for the frugal minded wine enthusiast. My go to sipping wine.March 9, 2019Purchased
3 months agoGreat value for moneyCan't believe how good my wine tastes for the price. A bit of a cooked top taste, because of the concentration step, but really crisp, clean aftertaste, Perfect first wine.March 7, 2019Purchased
4 months agoIt is still early in the process as I have just racked for the first time and have to go thru bottling, but the sample I pulled was good. There was oak provided with the kit which I did not pick up in the sample, but again, may be too soon. I like an oaky Chardonnay though, so I will be checking for it again in the next tasting. The kit is easy to use and i would buy it again at this price.January 12, 2019Purchased
5 months agoI have bought this product before and after aging, it was excellent. I recommend at least four to six months aging.December 20, 2018Purchased
6 months agoaddativeCan't really evaluate the wine. I used this kit as an additive in a recipe for another wine works great for that & at less cost than buying enough white grape concentrate.November 17, 2018Purchased
7 months agoGood every day wineTurned out just like I had hoped. Light, crisp and just enough sweetness that my wife even likes it.September 7, 2018Purchased
9 months agojust fine so farI just put this in the fermenter a day ago and it is starting to bubble now. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I usually make reds so this is a change for me.April 13, 2018Purchased
1 year agoGood chardonnay kit at a reasonable price.Saw this kit in August. Called Midwest supplies because it makes 6 gallons and is very inexpensive. I couldn't believe it. Much cheaper than buying fresh grapes. You need at least 100 lbs. of fresh grapes to make 6 gallons of wine. I promised I would write a review and here it is. I love this chardonnay kit. Well written instructions, not verbose. The yeast enclosed is a neutral one and a good performer. They actually included a packet of yeast food. I have never seen that in a kit, ever. I'm drinking the wine now and it is getting better and better. It's a clean chardonnay, citrus notes and a hint of oak, good bouquet and color. I was expecting a $5 wine, but it tastes more like a $10 chardonnay now. So why go to the store and spend $50-$60 on 6 bottles of wine, when you can make 30 bottles of wine for the same money. Be sure to let it rest in the bottle for at least 3 months or more. If I didn't live I California (have to pay shipping on these wine kits) I would definitely go to Midwest Supplies and buy one of each of the "Weekday Wine" kits.January 7, 2018Purchased

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 6 answersWhat would I need to do to make this a "very buttery" Chardonnay of 40 years ago?BEST ANSWER: Great question. Usually those big buttery Chards have gone through a malolactic fermentation and have spent some time in an oak barrel. As far as I know, it is not recommended to put a kit wine through a MLF. Too much trouble, too. That's where the big finish with vanilla and butter come from.
The best and safest way to modify a kit wine is to use a different yeast. The weekday wine comes with EC-1118. Great performer and is neutral. I like to use Lalvin DC-47 instead. Improves mouthfeel and enhances fruit flavors. I think the weekday wine kit is well balanced, so I wouldn't mess around with enzymes and additives. Remember you are making wine in 6 weeks not 2 years. Best of luck!are oak chips included in this kit?BEST ANSWER: Hi Mary,
Thanks for the question! I do not believe that the Chardonnay contains any oak chips.do these kits come with anything besides juice?(yeast,etc)?BEST ANSWER: click on "details and instructions". at bottom of box click the product instructions with the adobe logo
