I just paid $99 costco
after degassing and clearing, I add 100 grams of oak chips and let age at least 3 months and then rack... taste and then bottle and age if I like...
I quite often use the same kits and they are fun to tweak during aging...my 3-year-old oaked Shiraz is wonderful.
I whip mine in the carboy for 30 mins...
When aging like others have said use another ..... its not like youll lose that bottle. Or serilize some marbles to fill the head space
You are correct....if all else fail when I do a reisleling,,piesporter or other special fineky wines I add sterilized marbels to fill the gap...
I've had mine score between 68-73
Canada brings them in on mass at Costco....great value and left at the front door
UPS two days . Double kit or 60 bottles..Argentina ridge kits...
This is great info
The topping up with like-minded wine is not a waste. if you back sweeten works. and marbles from the dollar store (sterilized) works well also.
My 3 gallons of marbels (dollar store) in boiling water works well
Great information gang thanks
