    Anyone have any experience with Double A juice kits? I am giving one a try to taste the baco noir that might get planted if I like the wine.

    Kit came in today it was well packaged and came with a yeast, yeast nutrient and the juice. The instructions were basic and assume you have a feel for winemaking. I'll update more tomorrow when I start it

    The juice is bubbling along nicely. It has a wonderful aroma and was packed nicely and was even on some skin material so this seems like a good kit thus far. This is my first all juice kit so I'm looking forward to the outcome.

    It's a little off putting that the juice is described as 'toxic' before fermentation. Any ideas other than 500 PPM sulfites lol?

    I think they have to label it that way since it is not pasteurized and per fda standards cannot be labeled as safe to drink. I tasted a little when I was prepping it and didn't even taste heavily sulfited. However deeming as toxic is a little extreme and I think they could have found a better wording
