Our 30 bottle wine making starter kit is a complete starter kit which includes all the equipment you need to make up to 30 bottles of wine in as little as 7 days.
This complete starter kit contains:
1*25ltr Brewing bin with a pre-drilled lid to accept an airlock 1*25ltr Brewing bin, drilled to accept a Little Bottler 1*Little Bottler 1*Bubbler Airlock* 1*Syphon 1*Hydrometer 1*Thermometer 1*100gm pot of Cleaning and Sterilising Solution 1*Large Plastic Spoon or Paddle 1*bag of 30 tapered corks 1*ANY 23ltr wine kit from our White, Red or Rose Range of wine kits. The basic price is calculated including one of our Solomon Grundy Wine Kits, but you can choose to upgrade to ANY of the others from our range if you prefer a richer bodied wine.
The two brewing/fermenting bins, one of which has a pre-drilled lid and grommet to hold an air lock, are provided to ferment and clear your beer. One of the bins is drilled to accept the tap of a little bottler which makes bottling your wine much easier.
As the buckets are "conical" in shape and dissipate the pressure and the lids and grommets do not produce an absolutely airtight seal, whilst they will protect your wine from infection, fermentation MAY NOT produce sufficient pressure to accurately demonstrate the progress of your fermentation if you base your assessment PURELY on the amount of bubbles flowing through the airlock. Providing that there are bubbles on the surface of the wine and gas is obviously being produced, you can consider fermentation to be taking place. At the end of the fermentation period, you should ALWAYS check the specific gravity with your hydrometer rather than relying just on the bubbling rate. A plastic wine fermenter (and bored rubber bung) is available as an alternative to one of the bins.
A standard syphon is provided to make transferring your wine between the bins as simple as possible and a hydrometer and thermometer ensure you have everything you need to promote rapid and enthusiastic fermentation by pitching the yeast at the correct temperature and can easily check the progression and cessation of fermentation.
A large plastic spoon or paddle is also included to ease the mixing of the wine concentrate in the brewing water. Whilst the kit does not include bottles, we have included a bag of 30 tapered wine bottle corks to allow you to easily seal your wine in any recycled bottles you have available.
A tub of sterilising solution to ensure that everything is spotlessly clean.
Simply choose one of the 30 bottle wine kits from the list below and you could be enjoying your first bottle in as little as 7 days !!!!
*Depending upon which supplier's buckets we use for the fermenting bin, an airlock may not be provided. Youngs buckets do not have pre-drilled lids and are "snap tight" rather than "airtight" and thus don't need an airlock. Ritchies buckets and wine fermenters are airtight and drilled with a hole which needs to be sealed with an airlock.
