I must have been really good this year. For xmas I got a Vintners Best equipment kit and a Cellar Classic Cab-Merlot kit. I wanted to start with some kits to see if I like the process before diving in and planting vines. Me and swmbo enjoy touring wineries and last year filled our Virginia wine passports with 42 stamps.

I’ve picked up a bunch of tips and tricks from reading forums for a couple of months and feel more confident for it. Thanks to Smurfe, I already know, “spoon bad, Mix-Stir good”. I’ll be picking up one of these before starting.

Welcome aboard. Look forward to hearing about your experience. If you are a wine lover, I am sure you will be buying tons of equipment. I have not bought a commercial bottle of wine in close to a year and have around 400 bottles in my "cellar". And yes, Spoon Bad. All I can say is try to degass a kit with the spoon. It can be done but you will be wanting to call a paramedic when you are done and I am retired. :D
