    WineXpert Kit Chemistry Off?

    I agree with boatboy. You can always add tartaric acid post fermentation.

    WineXpert Kit wont clear

    I have two white wine kits that had dropped perfectly clear until I added more K-Meta and tartaric acid. It looks clear until I put a flashlight on it and then it looks like fine dust particles floating. One has been this way for 6 months. Should in try other fining agents or cold crash? I...

    Sulfite at Bottling

    I see charts and calculators that tell you the desired free sulfite in wine based on the pH. Is this the level of free sulfite I want at bottling or do I want to account for the loss of free sulfite during the bottling process? Thanks in advance.

    Riesling Yeast Suggestion

    Either BA11 or QA23 will work well. I also used 71B on the Riesling Passport kit this past year and it has turned out nicely.

    Vineco Vineco Passport 2018 LE Kits

    Did the 2011 kit include any oak? Also does anyone know if this year's Viognier Roussanne Marsanne kit it oaked?

    RJ Spagnols Age Makes a Difference

    WineXpert California Sauvignon Blanc Rosé

    If anyone is looking for another kit, Homebrew Supply has some that they just listed for $99.99 and use the "TAKE40" coupon. Comes out right at $60 before shipping. I just ordered 2 more.

    WineXpert LE Vermentino

    Is yours that bad? I added some tartaric adic that seems to help but still nothing special.
