    Bluetooth hydrometer

    I have one and love it. No need to fight the foam during the initial mixing and it’s so easy to just open the app and see where your wine is. Mine will read quite far away too, which is nice. The tilt also tracks temp, which is honestly super handy.

    CC Amarone

    Just bottled this wine and had about half a bottle left at the end. This is easily the best tasting wine I’ve consumed on bottling day. Its going to be spectacular once it gets some age on it. Too bad CC had to mess with their kits, who knows what the new format holds.

    If you read the description at LabelPeelers they indicate that this is the Forza kit. Although, now it’s 14 liters....

    New Winexpert Kits

    Moving to 14L for the top tier isn’t a step in the right direction. This should be interesting....

    New Winexpert Kits

    Saw a quick video promo-ing the new lines and saw the Amarone. Back from the dead!

    Island Mist kits fermented till dry.

    I have added the entire f-pack up front and I did not care for the end result. I have since concluded that these fruit wines depend on that f-pack addition for balance. You may feel differently, but I wouldn’t advise adding it all to the primary.

    Mosti Mondiale Mosti Mondiale Kits for sale on ebay

    Good luck, but with nearly $80 shipping on an all juice bucket I don’t foresee you moving much volume. I just purchased a meglioli for 149 shipped.

    RJ Spagnols Jumping Back In To Wine Kit Making

    I started drinking mine right away. It had a very berry forward taste to it. My buddy said it tasted like gummy worms. I was never really sure why he thought that, but he never refused a glass.

    RJ Spagnols Jumping Back In To Wine Kit Making

    Not sure that’s a raving review. [emoji12]. I’d have to look at my tweaks I did to mine. I still think I’ll make another batch of Diablo this year. There was just something about it...

    RJS Cru International Meritage (Canadian Okanagan)

    Funny. Just got an email indicating that this is going to be a permanent addition to the RJS family.

    Wine Kit Sadness

    Yes. The international line was basically just like Eclipse. There was another one that stands out, the Red Mountain Cab. My only thinking is these kits were sourced from premium grapes.

    Wine Kit Sadness

    To date my favorite kit I’ve made was the International w/ skins line Chilean Malbec/Shiraz. Discontinued right after I made it. It was mighty tasty.

    Cleaning time for One-Step no rinse cleaner

    To be clear one step is a cleanser and typically is used in tandem with some other sanitizer such as StarSan. If you are only using one step, you aren’t truly “sanitizing”. No idea what the implications are of this, but thought I’d chime in.

    Winexpert Eclipse Three Moons

    Ha! I have more wine stashed away than I know what to do with. As surprising as it may seem, 2 years isn’t tough at all. I started this hobby in 2014 and still have bottles from that first year.

    Winexpert Eclipse Three Moons

    Mine tasted really really young and very oaky. I don’t think I’ll drink a bottle before it’s a few years old.

    Wine Explosion! My Fault???

    I see a picture like that and immediately wonder what wrath I’d get from the wife for a spill like that. Lol.
