    Advice needed on the rose kit.

    The barrel made the filling quite simple but I had to transfer from the barrel to a bucket and back into the barrel after cleaning out the sediment in order to use the tap.

    Advice needed on the rose kit.

    Update I bottled it on day 14. Pain in the **** I'm going to have to invest in some better equipment I think to make the process easier. I'm enjoying a glass of wine now, my wife can't believe it's exactly to her taste!

    Advice needed on the rose kit.

    Thanks pal, I got the hydrometer yesterday from Wilko. Would it be worth testing it now? I've also seen your previous review and will leave out the additional sugar, thanks for the heads up.

    Advice needed on the rose kit.

    Started my first ever homebrew wine (rose from the range) I've followed the kit instructions but I didn't use a bucket, instead I used a plastic fermentation barrel with a small screw top (this has been placed on top loosely to allow air to get in (see pic) Made the initial mistake of...
