You make it from start to finish in the original FV.

I give it a good degassing in the original fermentation bucket with my drill attachment then added the stabiliser and finings A, you then wait an hour and add finings B, it will be crystal clear after 3 days, i usually find its clear by two, you can test it by taking a sample from half way down the bucket with some syphoning tube.
What did you attach to the drill to degas it with?

Have bottled this today and am very impressed.

According to my Hydrometer it has turned out at 11.1%

After adding the stabilizer and finings last Thursday i racked it into a clean FV today so i could use my little bottler rather than just syphon.

Hare is where i may have made a small mistake.

Due to Chippy's warnings about sweetness i didn't add any sugar when the instructions say to, however i did add 100g when i racked it off today under the impression that the stabilizer will have killed the yeasties to stop any secondary fermentation? Is this correct or have i got 27 bottle bombs brewing in my storage area? (Was 29.5 bottles but we have already sunk 1.5 bottles and given 1 to my neighbour)

I did find the wine a little dry and added the sugar in 20g doses until when i got to the 100g mark, i thought this was just right. So glad i didn't add the 750g the kit tells you to.

Anyway, if anyone can tell me about my possible secondary fermentation problem i would appreciate it

For what its worth, i think this kit is brilliant. I spent my childhood surrounded by homebrew but haven't tried brewing my own until now. For a first time brewer i thought this kit was brilliant and think the results are really really good - even after just finishing making it. I can thoroughly recommend!

PS I know you don't 'brew' wine, as such, but I couldn't think of a suitable alternative

Welcome BTW you 'make' wine rather than 'brew'. Don't ask me why.

Do you add the extra sugar recommended in the instructions after stabilising? i didn't as when i tasted it it tasted sweet enough.

Update.

I have made this kit regularly since the first in my OP, i still think it is brilliant value for money, i am sure that one of the members said it is a good kit re-branded with the range logo, i can believe it as i have made dearer kits that are no where near as good as this.
