Wine Making Kits

We carry the Winexpert line of wine kits. These are varietal grape juice (or a blend) in a bag in a box. Wine kits are sized to make six gallons or thirty 750 ml bottles. Winemakers can make 6 gallons using a 6.5 gallon carboy (unless you are using skins),or a 6.5 or 7.5 gallon food grade bucket. A 6-gallon glass carboy, two 3-gallon carboys or a 5-gallon carboy, and a 1-gallon jug are all options for secondary.

Selection kits have more juice for a richer, more full bodied interpretation of the wine. As always, time in secondary can be extended to go beyond just clarifying the wine. As the wine spends more time in the second carboy, it will condition and age. We always recommend taking more time than the kits suggest. Winemaking shouldn't be rushed.....
