Noticed NB’s wine kit sale today and decided it is time to jump on board with the wine making but need complete newbie advice and secrets to the trade. For beer I jumped right in without knowing about yeast pitching rates, temp control, proper aging and handling, grain steeping temps, ect. Without knowing all this I made something resembling a drinkable beer. What should I know jumping into a wine kit? It a bit of an upfront investment (compared to an all grain brew) and want to come as close to something as store bought as possible on the first run to convince the girlfriend that this is something we should pursue. Just basics, nothing crazy.
I was looking at this guy here because of the numerous positive reviews and the price range.http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/revi ... y/181/?p=2
