Has anyone done any of these MM Summer Breeze kits? I ordered the Wild Berry White Zin kit - sounded good and my wife should like this one. I may bump up the starting SG just a smidgen to bump up the abv just a bit, maybe to 9-10%
Have you tried mailing the company?
I did suggest I would be willing to purchase another Porto Corinto kit, which is pretty awesome just a few days into clearing, if he would apply that credit towards that. He emailed me asking some questions about what the SG was when I added the f-pac, what it was afterwards, etc.I've got a (Heron Bay) summer mist green apple riesling almost finished here. Will let you know how that one goes, if you feel like trying again.
...can you ask the retailer for a credit on a different product instead?
Ummmm, I wasn't going to mention the place, but that's the place I bought it from. In his defense he did say he would issue a refund in 2 weeks if I'm still not satisified. I'm just miffed that he made stuff up to make it look like I did something wrong. Want a laugh? Here's the email trail.
I asked George to open a kit and check to see how much was in the f-pac but he just wanted to get this behind him and issued me a refund. He was good about it and I've already spent it at his store. All is good.just a suggestion ..
Can you send an email to the mosti people direct and ask for the f-pac volume in that kit? The (HB) Green apple riesling I have, had about a litre of liquid in the f pac ( 4 cups) and the bag was full. If the F pack only raised the sugar level .004, it sounds like a manufacturing problem. I think it should have read higher than that.
Yes, he was very good, even after I showed obvious signs of frustration toward him in emails. I later acknowledged to him that I felt bad about the whole thing and this really wasn't his fault either. I just didn't like what he was suggesting and where he was going with this. I never even asked to have it replaced, he came right out and offered it to me without asking for it, so I was pleased with that. I don't think just any dealer would have done that. Even if he didn't I've purchased a lot of stuff from him and would have continued to give him business - I like that store and his prices are good.Im am surprised that he has said that but I guaranty that he will replace it or I will have a talk with him myself about this as I moderate that forum also and have done so for a few years. He has always come through for me and anyone that had a problem. If you are not happy with this product and h doesnt resolve it in the time he said pm me please.
Yeah, I've heard a lot about this kit and everything I've heard is good. I like to share, but I have a feeling I'll be playing the greedy port miser with this kit. I might even be hoping my wife doesn't like it, heehee. I was going to try to make some choc rasp port with some of my grapes I have coming but now I'll have 6 gals of this kit so I will have to rethink what I'll do with the juice I was going to do that with.You will love that raspberry choc port kit. We don't have anything similar here commercially.. so it's not like you can go into the off-license and buy a bottle. It's something you'll just have to taste for yourself.
Am hoarding my bottles, was going to give it as xmas presents to family.. currently rethinking that idea.
