Well, welcome Tina, this is a wonderful place to learn and you'll find the people are very friendly and will give you plenty of good advice.
When you say kit, do you mean an equipment kit or a wine juice kit? Juice kits are an easy way to begin this great hobby ( some will say obsession).
Good luck .. Doug
Is this a Vintners Harvest wine base. I have made many of these and can say that they have 2 recipes on the can and the 3 gallon recipe is 1 much better followed! Do you have a 5 or 6 galln carboy? Glad to have you here on our forum and hope you stay which Im sure you will cause this hobby is addicting!
If you ever get down to the Stevens Point area, Point Brew Supply has some great prices. No affiliation, except that I've purchased from them before. Super nice people. they have a website you can also order from: http://www.pointbrewsupply.com/index.php
However, I've found their in store prices to be even cheaper on some stuff.
