    What kit did you start with?

    Mine was an RJ Spagnols Breezin kit -- very easy instructions, gave me places to write SG and dates down. Took a month to bottle and as it is a sweet wine, we can almost start drinking it right away :)

    making a sweet wine

    I just got done making a Strawberry white zinfandel kit Made by RJ Spagnols and it is a sweet dessert type wine - not wine cooler sweet, but my wife loves it. They have a whole series of "Breezin" kits that are sweet. HTH Devon

    First time bottling

    They were not too bad price wise (I think) around $7 for a bag of 30. the regular cheapy cork ones were $4.50 for the same amount. worth the couple bucks to not have to build a wine rack to store them on their sides :p

    First time bottling

    well I just got back from my LHBS and I ended up renting his Italian floor corker and going with synthetic corks. I got the sythetics due to not having to leave the bottles on their side. The Beringer bottles I have dont have that thick lip at the top but ive seen them.

    First time bottling

    Im getting ready to bottle my first batch of wine (an rj spagnols breezin kit) and I have about 10 beringer white zin bottles and plan on buying the rest. My question is - are all corks the same size? and what kind are better, synthetic or real? :confused: Thanks, Devon
